:wave: Ferenz

Savannah Osprey fans are on hatch watch; hope to see a little fuzzy oslet soon :luck:

I am having trouble with my computer program that records videos and s'caps
so I've snipped a few s'caps from the Savannah Osprey site.

:wave: Ferenz Thanks for posting those wonderful s'caps :thumlft: I love the one of the wide open beak :wub:

I haven't had much time to watch the cam the last few days; I will be going on a vacation from this Friday Apr. 20th, and returning May 20th. I won't be online for the duration of my vacation so would certainly appreciate you posting some s'caps.

I snipped this s'cap from the Savannah Osprey site this morning; it looks like the egg on the right might be cracking :luck: I hope to see a 2nd little osprey chick before Friday.

They are so cute! Our local osprey are just beginning to lay eggs.

Nice view from the fixed camera

And I looked in at the perfect time - Dad just arrived with a fish!
20180426_022.jpg

And they are both up and ready for dinner!

6:14 pm
They are lined up so nicely and both taking turns - more bites for the bigger one, but he or she isn't trying to grab the bites headed for the little one. They are only 3 days apart - but that's quite a long time for chicks!
20180426_024.jpg
20180426_025.jpg
20180426_026.jpg

It looks as if the third egg isn't likely to hatch - reading the news stories under the cam, it sounds as if the other eggs both hatched on day 38 - and we're already up to day 43 for the third egg. And that may be a good thing, because these chicks are both over a week old - and that's a whole lot bigger than any new chick would be.


6:18 pm
Feeding is continuing - and Mom is getting a couple of bites, but both chicks are still eager for more.

Feeding is over - and Mom got a couple of big bites and a few nibbles - but the chicks got most.

Trying to get a picture of the smaller one's crop - and it's not easy.
