Windy day @ Hog Island, but no rain. They are wanting to name the mooring raft with the perch attached to the top by Eric. Eric did this because the captain of the Crown Royal did not locate here this season. This is the boat Steve built one of his "frustration nests" on each season and all the family perched on @ one time or another. :flirty:

I am in Maine and was near Hog Island. With a group and we were on our way to lobster dinner then to a lighthouse before it got dark so I was unable to visit. Our group took a little boat ride out of Camden Harbor and we got to see another osprey nest that appeared to have a cam. Nearby was an eagle nest. Parent nearby and at least one baby in the nest. Our mission was photographing! light houses but my highlight was seeing the nests!

:taz: Unfortunately, Rachel has gone into an alarm mode to protect her chicks the last 2 nights. The threat is unknown as it has not been seen or heard by cam viewers.

It's official, the mooring raft equipped with a roost placed by Eric has been named the "Roost Royal"! Shopped photo by Pennalope2.

Hoping Steve finds this a suitable substitute for the "Crown Royal" :teehee:

:wow: Steve's meal deliveries yesterday:

Fish deliveries:
June 12 1 blueback herring, 1 bluefish and 7 (!) founder (1 escapee)

Each osprey nest site deals with difficulties unique to that particular site. Here, obviously it is not food. But, they must always be on alert for predators and something large (eagle?) flew over the site earlier!

Also, they are going to wait for the babes to get through the first critical few weeks before naming them.

I just upvoted on my favorite names for the chicks this season. Don't think this is the final one, but I am unsure. They may throw out the top vote getters and then let us have a final say. I had to go way back, to find this from the other day that I remembered I liked that someone offered. It has 21 votes with mine and it is a one of the favorites among the voters. Go to Poppy's comments from today, to see how to vote!

:flirty: Terran (the earth), Meri (the sea) and Keir (the sky)
Ospreys nest on the earth, find their fish in the sea and fly free in the sky.

It's time to vote from a list of 10 names for your 3 favorite. I decided not to vote further as I could not come up with 3 names from the list that I really cared for.

Rachel is snuggled tightly with her chicks surrounding her as they all sleep right now. This is what exploreorg Mod posted earlier today for their chat @ Hog Island.

Hi chatters. After some careful review, we have made the decision to remove all Hellgate-related chat from this board. Normally we allow cross-discussion of other nests for comparison's sake, but since Hellgate does not have chat, it has at times dominated the conversation. Please do not post any further information or speculation regarding the Hellgate nest as we will need to remove it. Thanks for understanding!

Rachel remains as close to her chicks as possible during the night, just short of brooding them. Steve brought in 12 fish to feed his crew today.
