We have our first egg of the 2009 season!!

Thanks to our viewer's watchful eyes, the first egg of the 2009 season has been spotted. Osprey usually lay two to four eggs within one to two days apart. Each egg is approximately the size of a chicken egg, mottled and cinnamon colored; is incubated for about 5 weeks to hatching and both parents help to incubate the eggs.

We may have another egg any day so keep watching.

Took my son fishing at a local lake last spring. There were a mated pair of ospreys there. They were better fishermen than we were!

Very cool cam! Thanks!!

Both male and female on the nest, standing. I see only one egg. Very unusual to have a second egg in less than 24 hours. Maybe shadows.
