Thanks for the great picture -- even though it would have been nice to see a chick or two. :-)
We'll just keep watching and waiting!

If one of the eggs is #3, there's a good chance we may have an Easter Sunday baby, yes?

Camera not working this morning. Bad weather?

Hey Vivian,

I checked our equipment and everything is working fine. Also used an outside connection to our site and I can view the osprey cam with no problem.

birdgirl said...

Thanks for checking. Sometimes it's hard to tell with the 10 second delay. But at 7:25 I waited, and then noticed it was still showing last night's time. Glad all's well!

So I'm guessing the lost egg was #1, yes?

carol mullins said...

We need a close-up!

carol mullins said...

False alarm. No chick as of 7:24 on 4/15.

Good morning Carol,

Until the chicks hatches we really won't know which egg was lost. Today marks the 40th day since the first egg was laid. So we could witness a hatching at any time.

birdgirl said...

Beautiful close up of Bea this morning. Is there a little (hatched) chick under there?

Good morning Vivian,

No chicks yet. I'm hoping we don't have any hatch until Sunday because of the approaching weather for the next few days.

carol mullins said...

Is there now a chance that one or both of these eggs will not be viable? I'm thinking at least one should have hatched by now. Maybe that one very cold night we had was too much.

moderator said...

Carol,

It could be that the egg the crow got to was the first laid. If so, the other eggs were laid three days apart, so again it could be any time. But yes it is possible that none of the eggs are viable. We just have to wait and see.

birdgirl said...

If an egg hatches after about 40 days, the first laid egg would probably be hatching today or even tomorrow. That gives us 4 - 6 days to remain hopeful that we still will have one or two little bobble-heads.

Thanks Vivian

Poor Bea and Jasper are really gonna get a soaking today and especially tomorrow. Sorry for them (and yes Mod, I do hope the chicks wait till Sunday to make their appearance) and the Heritage will probably be a wash!

I'm currently out of town throughout Easter weekend and returning Wednesday. I'll try and post any comments when I get a chance. Have a Happy Easter everyone!!!

carol mullins said...

I think we either have a chick or we're about to.

carol mullins said...

Almost sure I just saw a chick!

carol mullins said...

YAY! We have a chick!

birdgirl said...

Could we possibly have TWO chicks this morning? Not a good picture, but it looks like Bea is feeding at least one little one and maybe two babies. I can't wait for our Moderator to show us some nice close ups!

Happy Easter everyone!!

JB said...

It looks like we have babies! I only noticed early Sunday morning, does anyone know when they arrived?

I saw two hicks this morning at 7:40 am. Bea was standing on the nest for a few moments and the chicks were clearly visible.
