I missed the big event! I had been watching earlier this morning and noticed that Bea was moving around more than usual. I was hoping that it meant that a chick was about to make an appearance. How exciting!

Amazing! Thanks for the close-ups. Do you know if the chick came from the first egg or from the second egg?

Thanks, MG, for the great closeup. Just watched a feeding, and what a sight! It is amazing how mama osprey can move those large dangerous feet around and avoid stepping on little MDK.

I'm looking for distinguishing marks on the eggs to see if this chick is from the first egg that was laid. I'll let you guys know what we find.

It is fascinating to watch the chick eat so soon after it hatched this morning. Actually, it started eating just under two hours since it hatched.

Iv been watching most of the day and I must say it's lovely to see the chick hatch and watching it being fed. Than for the great close up's hope we get some more.
