Nesting Diaries

Another unwelcome visitor is chased away by the kids.

Attacked by another osprey. Chased off by the nestlings.

The curious thing is, I only see one adult at a time on the nest. There is a perch, at the left of the nest, and the other adult might be there, but there's plenty of room in the nest for the entire family.

The third and final chick fledged this morning about 6:30 AM

One chick has fledged.

Nestling #3 starting to get more food, and getting bigger. Sometimes the two older chicks are with him and sometimes not. The sibling rivalry between the older nestlings has subsided. The behavior of all three seems to be more thoughtless than indicative of a rivalry, with all three in their turn walking on each other, bumping, and swatting one another with their wings.

Chick #3 is considerably smaller than the other two. The older chicks have tended push him out of the way, just out of reach of the adult. Today I've seen it lined up with the other two, increasing its chance of getting more food.

06/14/2018 by Ryszard
Egg#3 hatched this morning at approximately 7:30 AM. When it appeared, the third chick looked to be approximately the same size as the other two.

Two nestlings observed.

It's nice to have a webcam on the nest. I wish it provided a more oblique view, rather than vertical.

I think a Salem Electric crew is "seeding" the nest.

Salem Electric installed a webcam in January, 2018. link:

Although the nest appears to be deserted, a pair of ospreys still visits the platform.
