:1val: Only time will tell if the eggs here will be able to hatch after significant periods of time without incubation. Here's an excerpt from the mod's report today that expands on what took place yesterday:

"Audrey returned to the nest at 10:20 am, yesterday, after being away for 10.5 hours, the eggs only covered for approx. 4 hours by Tom. Unfortunately, the cam went offline during that period so we can’t tell for sure. When we were back live, the nest was abandoned. Tom returned at 9:52 am, about 30 minutes before Audrey."

:girlsad3: Eggs are alone again and probably for several hours. Possibly at least 5 hours. Difficult to tell d/t frequent highlights popping in and out on cam.

Hi, Friends!
Chesapeake Osprey season has come to an abrupt end. This morning around 6 am EDT, a crow destroyed the remaining two eggs.

:eggthumb: Audrey and Tom still visit the nest. Also, another couple with darker feathers come to the nest. Just a few minutes ago, Audrey being on the nest had to defend it as one of the osprey from the other couple pair flew above her and she flapped her wings frantically at it. But, that did not deter it as it landed and they were back to back on the nest both in the mantled position. Eventually the other one flew and Audrey remains on the nest calling out. Just went back in and she has flown.

:girlsad3: The visiting couple continue to try to takeover Calico Tom and Audrey's nest. They have been seen mating, bringing sticks and trying out the bowl. They have been on the nest this morning.

:1val: I thought this was neat. The visiting male and female osprey couple continue to visit the nest of Calico Tom and Audrey. Someone noticed the marking on the back of the male's head resembles a female holding an umbrella ... definitely unique!! Pics for comparison are by ILoveBirds:

:1val: For 3 or 4 days and nights, Audrey has decided to defend her nest against the attempted takeover by the visiting couple. Calico Tom has not been seen. The visiting female has not been seen recently, but the visiting male is still coming to the nest. He has even brought Audrey fish to the nest that she takes, then shoos him away ...

:1val: About 25 minutes or so ago Audrey landed on the nest in a defensive mode and within seconds the visiting male landed on her shoulder area and immediately down to the nest. They stayed on the nest almost 20 minutes before the male flew off. Audrey remains on the nest.
