Good Evening....Didn't I post a welcome to Chick #1? I know I did......Aren't there two other eggs?

Sorry, concussion kind of baffled......Bev, do you think these are different parents? I had not noticed any different behavior but you did today....just curious?
Good Night,
carolyn

Chick #1 is a strong little bit,
long tasks at hand to grow into a big bit,
and then to become a fisher osprey par excellence.
Hi Carolyn you did and I thanked you ... as for the parents .. and what I should have said I think they are the same as we saw at the end of the season last year but I think Oscar is a first time Dad going by his behaviour yesterday ... remember he was the the Osprey that helped out Ethel with the two kids after Dad Oscar went missing last season ! I will correct that !
Yes there were 3 eggs ! I am only seeing one left and I no clue what happened to the third one !
When you were away an Intruder landed on the nest along with Ethel and Oscar .. maybe one egg was broken at that time when Ethel and Oscar were defending their nest ..I don't know and maybe it is still there and hidden.

9:30 a.m.: I'm assuming it was Ethel still sitting on the chick and eggs, when Oscar arrived.
9:31 a.m.: Ethel flew off.
9:32 a.m.: Oscar was chewing on something (nestovers?) and then took off.

So sorry, absolutely forgot that Oscar went missing last season and this is the new wonderful, delightful Oscar that came in to help mom! So...I believe that explains it and he is wonderful stepping in like a trooper.

As for the eggs, you have seen 2 now I believe? Sorry about the intruder when I was gone.....
Great to see you, Sue and Ferenz here......i'll be back later sometime.
