Osprey chicks


This is the time of year to see fresh osprey chicks peeking out of nests around the Lake.

Often the chicks are seen interacting with a parent.

At another nest, three chicks look out at a parent in an adjacent tree. The chicks are distinguished by white-fringed wing feathers, and orange eyes, rather than the adult’s yellow.

    Funny looking at this stage. It is amazing that they turn into such beautiful acrobatic fliers

    Which nests are these? Shirley Smith sends me pictures of the nests in and around the Nelson area and beyond. I have watched the Osprey on cam for years and love watching them.
