Jack C. reports: I have seen two Osprey chicks in the Branford Lane platform nest and saw one there today. They have both fledged and my best estimate is about a week ago.

observer Jack C. reports: I saw an Osprey chick in the platform nest with Momma for the 'first' time this nesting season!

05/30/2018 by CarolC
Note that the hatching date of 5/15/18 is a pure guess based on incubation and appearance of at least one chick.

observer reports: Osprey was still in high platform nest at the end of my block on Branford Lane and looking down frequently ... 'apparently' paying much attention to chick (s) ... but I could not see a chick in the nest.

05/03/2018 by CarolC
observer reports: Momma Osprey still in nest but cannot see any evidence of a chick as yet ... only Momma's head can be seen from my ground view. Will continue to monitor and let you know if/when a chick can be seen in the nest.

04/02/2018 by CarolC
Observer reports: Momma Osprey is still on the nest with either egg (s) or Chick (s) ... I cannot tell at this time. I can only see the head of an adult Osprey pop up periodically. I assume all is going well since she is still on the nest. I think this one will be a late fledging based on others I've heard of this Spring!
