They were really early for Virginia. I think hatch is still a while, a few weeks.

There may be a hatch. While both birds were feeding separately, I saw the female, on the right, leaning several times forward, as if she was giving food to a hatchling. Of course we cannot be sure before the heads are visible…

The male brings a snack. The female feeds their offspring. Finally, I was able to see a bobbing head. One only was visible, but I think there is another one too.

Today I saw definitely 2 little heads during the feeding. Also, two little birdies (warblers?) were mating several times on a stick near the right corner of the nest (seen on the last 2 pictures). :eggbounce:

Great catch! I'll have to spread the word to CCB. I think the biologists might be banding some ospreys this year, maybe they will do this nest.

They are growing fast. Parents leave them sometimes alone.

One of the young ospreys fledged!

And returned about 30 minutes later.

Later, when 2 young were on the nest, a parent brought some food. The third one appeared quickly. This picture could be entitled “Confusion of wings”.
