Live video from Grand Lake Osprey camera

Hello Everyone. The Osprey chicks have now started to fledge (fly). The first chick fledged on August 17. As they fledge, they will improve their flying skills and their father will also teach them to fish. Dad is still bringing fish to the nest for them, but as soon as he finds that they can catch and provide their own fish, he will reduce the amount of fish that he brings to the nest. You will also start to see less of Mom. However, one or the other of the parents is still usually in the vicinity of the chicks and they will continue to protect the chicks if they feel that anything might threaten them. In the coming days, you will see the chicks come and go from the nest. You will also observe other behaviors as they become more independent and mature. ------ As always, I sincerely thank all of you for your support. The Ospreys provide all of us with a lot of entertainment, appreciation of nature, and knowledge as they raise their annual families. Please note that I recently upgraded the camera so that you will be able to hear audio from the nest and area around the nest. To turn on the audio, move your cursor to the lower right corner of the picture and then click on the audio lines which appear. Where you click on the audio lines will determine the volume. A number of you have made VERY generous contributions to keep this video stream going, and to maintain the nest and camera. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
