An interesting and lovely capture of 'a day in the life' of the Osprey, Debra. Looks like they have the perfect nesting site here too.

She may have brought a nibble home for the one chick, Debra. I'm not familiar with the feeding process when they are that young.

Thanks for the follow up on the osprey family. That gravel island with lots of boulder is a great compo. showing the osprey in shallow water eating a fish. Well capture.

Thanks Jeff, always appreciated.

Female Osprey had been eating a fish away from the nest while the male Osprey watched over the eggs/chicks. She had decided to go and clean up and cool off in the gravel pit below the nest. Based off of when they were mating there should be at least one chick in the nest and hopefully one or two more to hatch.
