I'm hoping this cam will be back online, and the osprey will have a better year. I'm setting the thread up so we have a place to post if something happens - will do the usual "first post" at that time.

The cam is back on - and both osprey are on the nest!

I do realize it's a bit hard to see anything here - but this is my local nest. love

Folks who drive by more often than I do reported that they were back at least a few days ago, and looking at the nice new walls on the nest, I think they've been working hard!

Doing a bit of catching up - there are three eggs, laid April 12, 15 and 18 - and I'll add a picture of them shortly.

First hatch!

We were able to confirm that there was a chick at 7:46 am. The cam always looks a bit hazy, and it's worse when the sun is relatively low - so we were pretty sure we saw movement at least a half hour earlier, but that was the earliest that we could confirm that we were seeing a chick.

12:00 noon eastern time

The little one is mostly sleeping, so I think she may have hatched early this morning rather than overnight.

Here are a couple of fuzzy pictures

This was day 39 for the first egg, and there are still two eggs in the nest which should be hatching in the next few days. Osprey eggs tend to be speckled, so they blend in well.

Video Camera First Feeding (4 minutes)

The chick has been mostly sleeping when I've had a peek earlier today - but now it was up - and ready for food!

And a s'cap of the feeding - this was after I stopped recording as I can't do both at once.

Judy, hope this takes a good turn. The chick in your video didn't appear to have a good feeding.

Video from 6:01 to 6:10 pm...the chick was not fed. I also observed this chick earlier today 5/22/12, female standing, not brooding, or incubating the remaining two eggs.

The feeding in my video went on for quite a while after I stopped recording, jazzel - I haven't learned to edit videos yet, so try to keep them short, and mostly wanted people to be able to see the chick, which isn't easy with this cam.

However, that's the only really good feeding I've seen, and Mom seems to be getting worse instead of better, in terms of figuring out how to get close enough to the chick to feed effectively. I think they have a relatively steep, deep nest bowl, and that may be part of the problem, because she's had this problem other years (assuming it's the same "she" - which I really don't know).

Here are a couple of s'caps from this morning. The first two are from a feeding around 7 am and the third is more recent and shows what I think looks like two eggs, one of which might have a pip. Today is Day 38 for the second egg and Day 35 for the third egg.
