This is the first time in a while I have seen both babies in the nest at the same time and a bonus - with a parent. But, as you might have noticed, I have been outside WORKING in the mess I call a yard and not eagle watching. The youngsters are "branchers" now, and have been for a couple of weeks, which means they are hopping out of the nest onto the branches where they can try out their wings. Often, one will be in the nest while the other one is sitting on a branch nearby usually with a parent.Remember, you can visit the eagle cam at http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm2.html with a link to the osprey nest.
The ospreys' eggs should hatch around the first of June.
And - Lucy's eggs should hatch this week.
SOOO much excitement!
