We like watching the Ospreys Nest
each year and to see the young chicks grow up and fledge. This is the first year I actually caught the moment that it left the nest for the first time. I sat there yesterday for over a half hour watching Mom screaming at little one to come fly to her to get this pic....too bad the quality isn't so great.

Baby left the nest& swooped right up and sat next to her looking for food. She did not feed him. I suspect after I left he got his first fishing lesson! It's all pretty cool to watch

Well, I'm always ready to admit a mistake( it builds character, right?)....i was wrong! That must have been one of the parents because I saw little ones in the nest today below two parents. They looked to be three weeks old or so , so we have a ways to go yet.

Oops
