Maybe another 4 weeks before they leave. Hopefully I will get a few images of the juveniles returning from a fishing trip with Dad.

One more juvenile left to find their wings, hopefully this week. Thanks for the feedback.

The male Osprey had just returned to the nest with a fish. The two juvenile Osprey immediately ducked into the bottom of the nest. One juvenile Osprey was out on the hydro pole, he quickly returned trying to land in the over-crowded nest. Mom is on the left and Dad is ducking as the little guy attempts a clean landing in the nest.
