Darien Osprey Have A Brood Of Four

On my last visit to Darien, I counted three chicks, but now that they are larger, it's clear there are four.  The nest was very busy with lots of feedings. 

There was also an interesting "sponge bath" of grass, that the mother brought up to the nest as well.  Plus there was an intruder Osprey who made a half-hearted attempt to steal a fish from the nest.
