Strong winds and heavy rain pounded the Lowcountry last night leaving many without power due to uprooted trees taking down power lines. Upon arriving at work today we were delighted to see GV and RJ sitting on the nest which didn’t sustain damage. We did notice GV fly from one side of the platform to the other this morning so these two might make up their minds to fledging soon.

There goes Mother Nature again!!
I'm so happy you saw them first thing. I know that feeling of holding your breath and hoping for the best. GV & RJ look just like their parents now, except for their "speckles". They have come this far and we all want to see them fly free.

It's almost 5:00 p.m. and I only see one osprey chick on the nest. Did one fledge?

No it's just out of the camera's view.

It's approximatley 8:15 AM on July 3, and there appears to be only one bird on the nest, is this another case of one of the young just being out of view of the camera?

Yes, just out of view of the camera. They still haven't fledged yet.
