What's Going On?

In the past few days our ospreys have taken an apathetic attitude toward their three eggs. Neither osprey has been seen sitting on the eggs considering the cold front that came through Saturday afternoon which is a concern. Also, the nest has been left unattended more than ever before. Usually an osprey will fly off after its mate is there to watch over the eggs.

I’m hoping we will not have a replay of last year. This is quite strange for both birds to be so attentive then to be so disinterested. Over the weekend the female osprey was mostly on the back edge of the nest and occasionally would lean towards the eggs location, but nothing more.
