Middle Cove Beach update.The juvie was in the nest eating a trout on Monday,the female
is still there and
after twenty minutes the female flew to the nest and without any mad mantling or much
of anything else,the juvie whistled
twice but very gently let momma take the trout,i was so impressed with the maturity of the
juvie to share like that!
The juvie then flew off the nest and started flying like wild,he would fly above momma
and then dive bomb at
her,he would rise up and then free fall,he was doing the wildest flying i ever seen,like a
rambuntious child,he was flying
and free falling to the right,then to the left,and then me and my friend watched this crazy
juvie do a full 360 degree
flip in the air,i was like!!! they can't do a 360 but in this juvie's excitment,he done it and we watched
it,what a manouver,i was very impressed,this
juvie was showing momma that he is quite the osprey,then the juvie started doing twists and sharp
turns in the sky,and boogied out
of Middle Cove Beach to go find pops or just going fishing on it's own,according to my calculation,
the juvie is 11 days old today,i work today
and tomorrow,should be interesting to see if momma is still with us on the 3rd of September,i think
i'll see her on thursday
but i think she'll be gone on Friday,i will observe and report.

Thanks, Gerard,

So very much enjoy reading your Middle Cove Beach reports. Wow - a 360 - would be ever so thrilling to see in person. Have a great day, Gerard!
