On my computer the lower left hand corner only shows a small green square and the word "stopped". I must have reached that limitation on viewing. Thanks so much for your response.

Our "little ones" look like they are ready to go! The gallery photos are superb.

toni - wondering if you've been able to connect to the Scottish web cam yet. The blue "play" button should be very obvious. Also, remember the time change - 4 (I think) later than EDT. If it's dark in Scotland, no video available.

Chicks here are looking great!! Plump and maturing so fast! Yes, wonderful photos, per usual.

Conn. Audubon - 4 eggs, 3 hatched, as far as I can tell. They've been having lots of trouble with the cam this year.

Blackwater - 3 eggs - due to hatch beginning of June.

Kentucky - 3 eggs, 2 hatched. Parents haven't given up hope on remaining egg - although everyone else has!

You can see I'm an osprey nut...LOL.

your recent photos are excellent..why not publish some and offer for sale (you could give the $ to upgrading the camera) i think the many people who have watched this incredible process might enjoy having a photo of our hhi ospreys..you have done a really marvelous job..

It is a little almost 4:30 pm EDT and it is almost 9;30 pm in Scotland. I don't have the software to watch their web cam, but wonder, do they turn it off at night?

The egg that hasn't hatched in the Kentucky nest was laid April 2--almost two months ago, and the osprey parents are still waiting. Now that's determination! The two little chicks in that nest seem to be doing fine, but appear slower to develop than the chicks in the Hilton Head nest. Maybe they're not being fed as often?

I am back to receiving the streaming video from Scotland. Thanks to everyone who responded to my question. I also wrote a note to them asking why I could not receive the video.

Regarding the Scottish cam...again! Just went on website and cam is working. Ultraviolet light so one can see the nest, even though it's dark in Scotland. Setup seems to change there from time to time.

Feel badly for Conn. Audubon - cam is located perfectly for closeups, but it keeps going down.

On we go...

yes, great pictures. Will be sad to see them go but glad other nests to watch. I am also watching eagle nests in California along with the other ospry nests. One thing re the Scottish nest, I don't see much feeding of the chicks going on and they seem really small. And I usually hear the female calling, calling........maybe for the male to bring fish. Hope they make it. I know their camera was down the other day, but you are able to watch at night. can you post the blackwater site again, I didn't keep it, thanks.

Cam is located at Woods Hole, Cape Cod, Massachusetts through the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Thanks, Realist, for the info on the Woods Hole cam. That's going to be so much fun to watch. No empty nest syndrome for me!

Flap, flap, flap! Wow, the "kids" are really testing out their wings this morning. Wonderful to see the healthy progress of the chicks. It won't be long now before they take off for a trial flight. It seems like yesterday when we were watching the hatchings!

Realist said...

Flash!! Woods Hole (Cape Cod, MA) has a hatching! Couldn't tell if one or two. At least one egg still to hatch - hard to tell if one or two.

Here's website address again:

I watched a chick hatch at Woods Hole on Saturday (May 29). The camera is further away from the nest than this one, so it is a little more difficult to see, but it was exciting. By the next day another chick had hatched. The mama osprey doesn't seem to spend too much time sitting on the third egg, so I wonder if it will hatch.
