Long Island Sound Osprey

Over the July 4th weekend, I got to watch a pair of Opsrey and their two young ones on a tiny island in Long Island Sound. So, much more fun than fireworks!

Two Weeks Old?

At the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, there was one visible eyass on the nest.  It may have been two weeks old, which makes the fledge time somewhere in August. 

It was hard to tell if there were other eyasses in the nest.  The feeding behavior of the mother made it seem as though two were possible.  We'll just have to wait until they're bigger!
