I missed the return, but when I checked at 1:45 both were in the nest. The chick probably fledged before today.

Mom returned with a fish, which the fledgeling promptly claimed as his/her own.

The chicks are doing quite well. Mom and Dad have been stuffing them with fish all day! I haven't seen either one leave the nest today. The cam didn't come on until 10:00, so maybe they did their flying before then.

See that speck in the upper left corner? That's Dad coming in with a fish.
Image

And here's Mom bringing a nice goldfish. I still haven't figured out if they're raiding someone's fish pond or getting them out of the Scioto River (apparently there really are koi in the Scioto!)
Image

Fat and happy!

:sunconfused: I read a post c/o osprey stealing fish from their pond ...it was from Columbus ... maybe on FB for the tv station ... this was a week or so after I posted here they seemed to be bringing in goldfish ... I started to bring it here, then I thought no, I'll just pretend "I KNOW NOTHING!" I'm sure people can get pretty upset when their koi go missing! :teehee:

:sunsmile: Found this from ABC 6 @ the site:

Our Osprey chicks have left the nest!

Osprey returned high above the ABC 6/FOX 28 studios on Tuesday, March 28th, months of an empty nest. The couple laid three eggs, all of which hatched. Sadly, in late June one of the chicks died. Experts with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources say it was likely something natural, possibly a genetic defect. They say that there is a 70% chance that one in three Osprey chicks will die.
The other two chicks grew quickly and have started learning to fly. The week of 7/25, they started leaving the nest!

It's getting more and more difficult to view the nest. Today is the first time the nest has been online since Saturday, and it wasn't on for long. When I called the tv station on Monday I was told that they couldn't show the nest because the camera lens was dirty and supposedly people call them and complain about having to see the filth. When I pointed out that the camera was currently pointed at downtown and the lens was perfectly clear she hung up on me. Go figure!

Just after sunrise the little darlings were still fast asleep.
Image

Before long they were wide awake and awaiting breakfast.
Image

One of them took off and started flying circles around the nest. He or she then landed, waited a few minutes, then took off again to do some more laps. He/she did this three times while the other juvie watched.
Image

What's the number to room service again?
Image

Eventually the second juvie took off after the first. As you can probably guess, this was the last clear shot from the camera this morning.
Image

The camera is currently aimed skyward awaiting rain to clear the lens.

It's the first time since last Wednesday that the nest has been online. Both chicks are present and both are eating fish.

Here are pictures of the last time the nest was online, on August 14th:
Image

Image

From what I could tell, both chicks were still around however only one of them spent the night in the nest.

On August 10th I saw both chicks eating in the nest. I saw a parent bring in a fish and very quickly depart (so quickly that I couldn't tell if it was Mom or Dad!) As sunset approached, the chicks became very active and started taking turns flying circles around the nest. Once it became dark only one of the chicks spent the night in the nest.

Since I can't tell the chicks apart, I don't know if it was the same chick who stayed in the nest those two nights.
