Note: Thanks to Vanessa Greene for details on these observations.The osprey chicks are marking their one month birthday!In the last few weeks, there have been some changes in the nest...the clouded osprey cam (contributed in part by the osprey's feces and projecticle.Any attempts to hose down the osprey cam were discouiraged due to the stress it would place on the ospreys.
The chick will continue to depend on her parents for food (fish being the preferred option! Some of the feeding will transition from in the nest to eventually feeding her while perched somewhere away from the nest.Since the osprey cam lens has cleared in certain spots, watch for some wing flapping, hopping, with some lift, hovering above the nest before she finally takes off on her maiden voyage.Usually it's just a short loop and back to the nest.This strage, caled fledging, is right on schedule-- at about 7.5 weeks of age.
Note: the rains have cleared some of the murkiness from the osprey cam!Usually the adult male will be the last to depart, as he remains to feed the young osprey as long as she is asking for food.
