Nesting Diaries

Was there when one of the chicks fledged today. It was flapping and jumping in the air. It missed the nest when coming down and fell about 40 feet before getting air under its wings. It made one short circuit around the nest the gained elevation and crash landed on the nest. It liked the experience so much it flew again taking a wider circle around the nest then crash landed again. It then layed flat in the nest. Enough of that for now. See photos.

Two chicks about 2 to 3 weeks old. This is the design that cell tower Osprey nests should be built. Safe for the Osprey and accessible if repairs or maintenance needs to be done on the cell tower equipment.
