ONLY BECAUSE OF THE ROBO VOTING. SAD, THE WAY 1 PERSON IS ALLOWED TO NAME THESE BIRDS !!!!!

L'inda Azzalina-Ketrow

A perfect name for this baby, I still can't believe that not only an egg hatched but that mom and dad turned out to be wonderful parents. Truly a MIRACLE !!!

margaret clisham

Thank you so much for allowing us to vote for this wonderful chick. It has certainly been a MIRACLE that he even survived in the early days. Now it is a MIRACLE that he survives injury when the parents are stepping all over him while they are constantly rearranging the nests contents. It is also a MIRACLE that his parents finally caught on and turned out to be super parents. Thanks for your wonderful coverage.

Miracle is getting fed dinner now!! Miracle is getting so big! So happy the parents caught on!!

a bit of a stretch done by the chick. Geez, did it grow more feathers and is getting bigger overnight????

Cherrycarol

MOM IS MOVING THIS huge STICK AROUND & SHE HAS HAD IT ON TOP OF MIRACLE 10 TIMES NOW. LUCKILY SHE JUST MOVES FROM UNDER IT.

Mom's silhouette is at the upper left side of the nest.
She is trying her best to sleep but can only accomplish mini-naps :-(

LOL CherryCarol. I watched her move that HUGE stick around and on top of baby. I was hoping it would go over the side, and finally it did! She seemed happy without it. Its so cute the way dad sometimes brings small fish, it isn't enough for both, so she screeches at him and soon he brings more! Heh, heh henpecked. Also watching Stanley and Iris in MT. Stanley is bringing in food for four, plus himself. Awesome job he does. This dad here will learn all that one day.

Cherrycarol

MIRACAL GETTING FED AGAIN. SURE IS GETTING BIG!

I've watched the MT one also. # to feed & doing a good job. There nest looks more like an eagles nest.

mom is perched at the upper left corner of the nest. You can see her side profile. She isn't dozing at all.

Sun will be up at 607am.

Darlene Nichols

.....mom is in full mombrella mode.....MIRACLE and both parents have been a very interesting and heartwarming saga.....its been a scary process to watch them develop and to watch their instincts emerge......but aren't we lucky to be observers ?

Cherrycarol

Yes we r Darlene. Thank you Alcoa. Carol

Lyn

Hi Alcoa, well this family are precious aren't they? But please consider for next season a nicer platform, maybe one of those upmarket mesh ones so that those storms cant whip it off the pole, its such a windy spot sometimes! The sticks get blown off so much.

Rachel Gaines

Congratulations, Miracle, on your new name.
You are growing into a beautiful osprey; and it's a joy to watch you grow.
Best wishes to our osprey family

Blessed weekend, everyone

Seems like a distant memory when I kept worrying about little "Miracle" being fed..

Now it seems every time I stop by he/she is eating :)

What an interesting..educational and emotional journey it has been..

mom is in her usual place...upper left hand corner of the nest, facing toward the cam. Possibly the chick is nestled underneath...too dark to see.

Rosemary

I have just noticed what looks like another egg in the nest. Has it been there all the time?

mombrella time again. It has been 5 days since i am able to see the chick during the daytime hours and has grown so fast.

It must be in its growth spurt phase and doing well. Its white stripe on the back is almost gone and pin feathers are appearing.

It is terribly hot as both are panting. Hopefully dad will do another delivery

245pm a boat zips by and mom sounds an alarm.
