Two Babies: Feeding Time

 As far as we can tell, the ospreys hatched out two babies this year (it's been three since 2010). The young ospreys are getting bigger and the parents are bringing fish in steadily.  When the fish is on the way, the parent in the nest starts to call it in, a high-pitched "chee chee chee" sound we know so well. If we're in the yard, we stop what we're going to search the sky to see from which direction the delivery is coming.


The parents might be the same ospreys returning every year; they seem unfazed by the person with the camera walking close to the nest. But every year, the young ones keep a close eye on the intruder.
