The male is doing a fantastic job of providing fish to the nest. The two chicks, GJ and MG, appear strong and eager to gobble down all the fish they can before falling to sleep. The female continues to rotate and incubate the third egg, which should hatch this weekend.

Way to go mama and papa ospreys! Looks like mama is pretty worn out this morning. At least there is beautiful weather for them. Thanks, moderator, for all the updates and explanations.

This is so exciting and I appreciate your (the moderator's) explanations! It is an interesting perspective to peek into their world and see first hand the challenges they face.
