Here is the latest word from Blackwater:Nest Update

04/17/11:
We keep seeing our female sitting in the nest, and we think she's going to stand up and have an egg underneath her, but so far no eggs. We think she's getting very close, especially since we've been seeing more mating on the nest.

NEST UPDATE FROM THE SITE


Nest Update

04/18/11:
Egg Alert!
We have our first osprey egg of 2011! We expect to see another in 2-3 days. Keep in mind there might be delayed incubation on the first egg, meaning the parents might spend some time off the egg.

Once we have a full clutch, we'll open the Osprey Cam Web Log.

A report from Blackwater.....


04/25/11:
Egg Alert!
We now feel confident that we have three eggs. There is a small chance we could see a 4th laid by the end of Wednesday, but 4 eggs would be the most.

It appears to be a beautiful, sunny morning at Blackwater and both osprey have been at the nest box for a while.
