Photos of this nest
osprey observed mating, duckblind destroyed over the winter and now this former huge nest is very close to the water.
3 healthy chicks observed in nest.
finally proof that the chicks are hatched!!! This nest is crazy deep and while everything Momma does indicates that there are babies I didn't have proof till today, sadly thanks to a jerk of a boater screaming past the nest at full speed. Still not sure if there are more than one hatchling but very excited to see the one!
I believe that the chicks hatched one week ago, Mother started standing versus laying down all the time. However the nest is deep and while it seems she is feeding I have not seen actual hatchlings here yet.
