Chick continues to do well. Parents are not seen on cam this visit. The suggestion for a name for this chick continues for 2 more days:

Only 2 more days to join Chesapeake Conservancy’s Naming Contest! The poll ends June 23 so start devising up some clever names and submit them using this link: https://disq.us/url?url=htt...

The chick is growing and looks gorgeous! I have tried to follow up on the naming, but unable to find anything and can not get the chat here today.

Names have not been revealed as yet per chat, which is up again. Audrey is currently feeding the babe. Calico Tom left a few minutes ago. Here is a pic of Audrey and chick from earlier today by Fish Hawk Watcher:

:5val: Male or female, this baby has certainly inherited that soft facial beauty that is particular to Audrey!! Excerpt from Poppy's commentary this morning:

As per banding our Junior, this is the latest info: Of course, it was planned to band it. Unfortunately, our regular bander, Craig Koppie has an injury and is most probably not able to access the nest. However, he and the Crazy Osprey Family are hoping for his improvement or looking for an alternative. Since it is the time for banding, not only on this nest, it might be hard to accomplish.

Junior’s name as well as the winners of Chesapeake Conservancy’s naming contest will be announced on Friday, July 12. So, please stay tuned.

:spring1: "Lil Bit" it is!!

Chesapeake_Conservancy_Member • 32 minutes ago • edited
We're excited to announce the winning name of the Osprey chick as part of our #NameThoseBirds contest!

It was a fierce competition between Archie and Lil Bit, but the Osprey chick, as decided by voters, has been named Lil Bit!

Thank you to everyone who participated and thank you for your support and viewership!

There will be no banding of "Lil Bit" this year d/t Craig Koppie having an injury that prevents him from banding. We have an update from Mrs. COM just released this morning with photos:

:clap: Lil Bit fledged just a few minutes ago!! Can be seen on the DVR. (9:08 EDT) Very determined. Unknown as yet where he landed ...

Edit to add: Video is by Arlene Beech:

:spring1: "Lil Bit fledges! Chesapeake Ospreys. 09.08 / 17 July 2019"

Edit to add: And Found! Capture is by Fish Hawk Watcher:

:spring1: Congratulations Lil Bit!! Excerpt from commentary by Poppy the Mod on location: "S/he landed on the NEMA box, close to the dock"

:eggthumb: Lil Bit made it back to the nest a couple hours ago while Audrey was calling for food and shortly thereafter Calico Tom brought in a fish!! The place where Lil Bit had fledged to is a few yards from the nest as reported per the mod here.

Lil Bit is a typical teen, coming and going on short trips out of the nest and is currently eating a fish brought to the nest by Dad, I believe!!

:buzzybee: Some are calling the visiting juvie ET 2.0 after the visiting juvie that moved in and stayed on the nest in 2015 when Maine and Montana were there. Others are calling it Lil Bitty, because it is so much smaller than Lil Bit. Lil Bit is not pleased with the visitor in any way. Calico Tom came in with a fish and Lil Bitty got his talons, then the fish and ate thankfully, as it looks as if it really could use a meal!! Very small and thin, although sometimes it looks nearly the same size, so may depend on cam angle with their respective positions on the nest. Video of event is by elen, "ET 2.0 gets fish, Tom's talons suffer | Chesapeake Osprey | 29.07.2019" :

:flirty:

Folks are wondering what the sleeping arrangement will be tonight as Lil Bit has been sleeping off cam and Audrey has been sleeping alone on the nest recently. Poppy the Mod let everyone know Lil Bit has been sleeping on the cam post as can be seen in a photo that Mrs. COM sent recently:

:15heartbeat:

Lil Bit just tried to force Lil Bitty off the nest, but it did not work!! Lil Bitty stood it's ground and ended up forcing Lil Bit off the nest! But, not to worry as Lil Bit returned immediately!! :teehee:

Edit to add: And while I was posting above, Calico Tom came in with another fish that Lil Bitty grabbed and is eating again!! Do not see Lil Bit, so I don't know what happened.

Edit to add: They are saying Lil Bitty forced Lil Bit out of the nest again just prior to Calico Tom coming in with the 2nd fish.

Edit to add: Poppy the Mod shared this:

Mrs. COM assumes that it is an osprey that just fledged, and is really hungry, maybe hasn’t been back to his nest for a while.

Edit to add: Lil Bit has returned to the nest.

Someone brought in a humongous fish earlier that Lil Bit was able to feed on in peace, and eventually Audrey and Lil Bitty! After Lil Bit finished eating he flew and Lil Bitty is spending the night on the nest with Audrey!! It continues to be quite the struggle for Lil Bit to accept this change of events, but Lil Bitty has stood his ground and intends to stay for now obviously. Am hoping Lil Bit will be able to adjust having this little guy around. He is very hungry!! :5val:

ET 2.0 or Lil Bitty is now being officially named "Archie" per Mrs. Com. Archie and Lil Bit were name choices in the "Name the Chick" contest at Chesapeake for the current chick of Audrey and Calico Tom this season. Mrs. Com (as I) preferred the name Archie for their chick, but it lost to the chosen name "Lil Bit". So, "Archie" it is!! He is still there this morning and Lil Bit is still not pleased per chat. But, since I have been here it is quiet as Lil Bit is off nest right now. Here is a great capture of Calico Tom bringing in 2 fish in 1 talon this morning with the capture by elen:

:flirty: He's got 2 chicks now, after all!!

Poppy Mod • 35 minutes ago • edited

Archie is currently being dive-bombed on the nest by at least one of them, sometimes causing him to go off the nest, but he quickly returns.

Lil Bit has landed in the nest and Archie is taking a submissive stance, but holding his ground.

went back in DVR. Not too serious .
jsut thought i would pop in and check.

all looks well .I am so pleased they are feeding another young one. :15heartbeat: I t could have lost its parents. One never knows their story. or wandered away too far and Voila WE had this happen a few years back at one of our falcon nests. After a few days, the new young one, just became one of the group.

Hope things stay calm.

thanks SWINK . I enjoyed watching them today
