Bird(s) still around. One on the nest. Beautiful photos Alastair! t-y

07/23/2019 by Alastair
Been a busy week or so. Two of the three young are airborne. So beautiful to see.

07/10/2019 by Alastair
They're growing quickly with first flights soon in sight. Another pair of Osprey; a male and a female, came into the area last week. Feathers of the resident adult pair appeared to be ruffled, taking to the air in defensive posture of the intruders. No clashes were observed.

07/10/2019 by Alastair
A lot of wing stretching and flapping by the young.

07/10/2019 by Alastair
Three young confirmed upon review of photos.

05/31/2019 by Alastair
Pair at nest this morning. Sounding normal today. One brought breakfast to nest and then perched atop camera post to eat alone. No signs of young yet.

05/28/2019 by Alastair
Stopped by late afternoon sole occupant making continuous calls of a sound not common to their usual communcation. Appeared distressed. Mate was not in sight. Perhaps eggs in nest now ?

Two birds on the nest today.

Two birds on the nest today.

04/07/2019 by Casha
One bird on the nest :)

03/31/2019 by Casha
Drove past on Sunday, no sign of ospreys though

09/04/2018 by Casha
1 bird on the nest, no others observed.

07/27/2018 by Sunkeeper
2 chicks have fledged, 1 is a real hold out and won't move off the nest. Strange it's been over a week since the first flew but this one is just hanging out and doesn't want to go.

07/19/2018 by Sunkeeper
3 chicks hatched when the cam came on June 2nd. 4th egg hatched though it died about 3 weeks later, most likely from lack of food. Older chick bullied it badly and wouldn't let it eat at all.

04/22/2018 by Casha
Bird observed sitting on the nest, and one beside it preening

04/09/2018 by Casha
Two birds were at the nest; one on the nest and one on the crossbar.

08/10/2017 by Sunkeeper
Both chicks fledged successfully the same day.

07/02/2017 by Sunkeeper
The smallest of the chicks appears to have died, possibly on June 22nd. The two bigger ones look great, appear to be almost at fledge stage by the colour of them. The almost look like adults now.

06/09/2017 by Sunkeeper
Just guessing at the hatch date by the size of the chicks. Cam is on and off, difficult to always have accurate information.

04/04/2017 by Casha
Some Osprey are back! Observed eating a small bass! This is very early for their arrival!

08/02/2016 by Sunkeeper
All 3 chicks are exercising their wings in preparation for fledging. Could happen this week as they were 6 weeks old on Fri, well the first hatched was, the other two close behind.

07/07/2016 by Sunkeeper
Almost 3 weeks old, all 3 are very active and growing well, despite the heat of southern Ontario

06/26/2016 by Sunkeeper
3 chicks have hatched at the Breslau nest. All look healthy and are being fed well by Mom.

06/17/2016 by Sunkeeper
The picture on the cam of late is so bad it's hard to tell just what's going on. Sure wish they'd do something to correct the pixel look of it.

09/18/2015 by Casha
Birds must have left for the season. None observed during the past 3 weeks.

05/30/2015 by Sunkeeper
This pair is still inconsistent with incubation duties. Doubtful the egg will hatch.

05/16/2015 by Sunkeeper
Seem to be a very inexperienced pair. Incubation is very sporadic. Have not observed the male bringing any fish to the nest at all. There were 2 eggs at one point but it's down to 1 now, no idea what happened to the 2nd egg.

05/16/2015 by Casha
One egg in nest. Two crows observed sitting on the nest when parent bird was absent.

04/12/2015 by Casha
Pair of birds returned April 7, 2015. The nest has two live cameras at this location: http://birdsofbreslau.com

03/26/2015 by Casha
Well, apparently there are some avid Osprey watchers out there who haven't heard of Osprey Watch. This nest has been observed for some time: http://birdsofbreslau.com/. Birders set up cameras. But they are not working at the moment.

11/07/2014 by Casha
Birds gone from nest.

09/15/2014 by Casha
This is a well known and established nest. It has a camera. Three birds visible on Aug 8, 2013
