Female osprey on the nest as if 2/10/18
Three healthy chicks are grown and ready to fledge. They are practicing and doing well. Any day now.
Chick's head popped up while female was feeding it today. Observed through telescope. Possibly two chicks but only saw one today.
The female is spending most of the time on the eggs while the male delivers fresh fish at least twice a day. No big disturbances. The female looks very calm.
Pole and platform were installed on March 3, 2017. Three days later, a male osprey arrived and starting building the nest. A female arrived on March 10 and they have been occupying the nest almost full time as of March 13. They have been mating on the nest since March 10.
