Congrats to Mr & Mrs O :woohoo: Their 3rd chick has hatched :rh:

There were no tweets on the site but when I rolled the video stream back to about noon nest time Mrs O was just getting up to feed the chicks. The egg shell was still there but clearly 3 chicks were visible and being fed :woohoo: I have recorded a video which I will upload to YouTube and will post some s'caps later.

Video of feeding around noon nest time.

I was watching a feeding today and had to turn the cam off because #1 was being a huge bully, attacking both siblings :angry: The youngest one is so much smaller and every time it tried to move closer to Mrs O for some fish #1 pecked it into submission and it just laid down in the nest :cry1: I was recording so I went out of the room and left it on for awhile. I have uploaded the video to YouTube here.

I snipped a few s'caps from the video. This is Mrs O trying to get out of the way of Mr O approaching the nest in the wind.

Bully #1 continues to attack #3.

Every time #3 got up #1 turned around and pecked it again :cry1:

Bully #1 watched #2 getting some fish then attacked it too :angry:

Just found this site today and noticed that there hasn't been an update in a while so here is a pic of the 3 of them. Looks like #3 is a bit smaller than the others, but that is par for the course (hahaha see what it did there?). Anyway #3 got a nice big crop at this feeding and looks to be doing OK.

Welcome to the Savannah Osprey 'nest' Duck_Keeper. I have been away for the past 25 days and didn't access the internet at all. Thanks for posting your s'cap of the not-so-little osprey chicks. Wow, they sure have grown since I last saw them :thumlft: I'm glad to see that #3 is getting enough to eat and doing very well.

I had a look at the site today and snipped some s'caps.

The osprey chicks are growing and developing so quickly :thumlft: Fledge day is just around the corner :woohoo:

Here are some s'caps I snipped from the site; I wasn't able to watch too much today.

A fish had just been delivered to the nest. In the scuffle to get the fish,
it slipped off the nest :roll:

All 3 wondering where the fish went.
