:egglaugh":

But the one on our left looks larger to me.
(I can NOT tell them apart this season - and I'm still not convinced that the one hanging around is Audrey...)

Video from 2:44pm today of 'strange/new' osprey following Audrey(with fish part) into nest. Audrey was not happy:

7:40ish this morning:

These 2 have been on the nest since yesterday afternoon. The one on our right (Audrey???) tried to chase the other one off yesterday when Audrey? came in with a piece of fish (on video above). The one on our right has distinctive dark eye markings and appears to be a female. If they are both female, why isn't Audrey? chasing it off? Last season, Audrey immediately built the nest in 1 - 2 days; this year, it looks like nest building has stopped. Maybe this is the behavior we'll see when an area is becoming saturated with osprey.

Added: The cam angle makes it difficult to see actual size differences between the two.

Audrey(?osprey on our right) flew off. The other osprey turned a bit and I saw a definite dark breast = female.
By the time I finished typing this, dark eyes flew off.

I refuse to guess who is who - lol - I aint good at it
But last year Audrey encouraged Foster - a stray - by feeding her.
I wouldnt be surprised if this is Foster again. :egg13:
I also wouldnt be shocked if Foster helps Audrey with Audreys young. :egg16:
I wont be shocked if both females lay eggs here. :egg14:
I've seen enuf that little shocks me.

SOAP OPERAS THEY ARE!

Hi Shep! Foster (ET) would still be in South America until 2017 - unless he 'wintered' in the Chesapeake (which I've never heard of!)

Anyway, osprey on the nest 11:38am.
Audrey(?)

A lot of squawking (alerting?), looking up...

New Blog posted with great pictures pictures (and a lot of questions!).
https://ospreycamerablog.wordpress.com/ ... scratcher/

It appears that "dark eyes" is a male from a nearby nest! The COF is in touch with Dr. Paul Spitzer (osprey expert with a lot of experience at this nest) and is waiting for more answers!

Audrey on the nest (carrying on as usual!); dark eyes was there and left a few minutes ago.

Audrey was on the nest alone for several hours today - no more visits from the new male.
Curious to see what COF is seeing...

Looks like Calico Tom is back!
(Last season he appeared on the nest on April 1 - considering Leap Year - he's right on time!)

Added: Posted on FB page approx. 8 am this morning:
From Mrs. Crazy Osprey Man this morning!
"Pretty significant osprey battle going on in and around the nest this morning. This may be the arrival of Tom."
