Live video from Grand Lake Osprey camera

Hello Everyone. The Ospreys have been incredible parents this year. They have kept the eggs nice and warm and protected, and the male has brought many fish for the female and chicks. The chicks are doing well and have started to fly. The first chick even caught his first fish. Mom and Dad have been very busy taking care of the chicks as they have grown rapidly. It takes around 52 days for the chicks to mature before they can fledge and fly. The chicks are now large enough that Mom no longer has to feed them. Sometimes, Dad just drops off a fish and they help themselves. A number of people have asked where Dad usually is? Well, he is usually in a tree which is very near the nest. From there, he can guard the nest, and he can also respond to any requests for help that Mom or the chicks might ask of him. If she or the chicks are hungry, or need help, Mom will call out to Dad and will let him know what her needs are. Note that, if you click on the two arrows, in the lower right corner of the picture, you can make the picture much larger on your monitor. 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! If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so at: This coming Fall, I hope to install a microphone so that you will be able to hear the birds' vocalizations in the future. By the way... An article about my Ospreys and nest was recently published in a distinguished magazine, called 5280 Magazine. The article is very informative and interesting.
