Look for eggs in late April

Second chick fledged 1:05 pm on July 24; may have tried to return at 4:43 pm - or a neighboring chick may have tried to land - whoever it was, it was chased off by the resident chick; second chick landed in spite of defense by older chick at 1:22 pm on July 23. Subsequent comings and goings more peaceful.

2 osprey and 3 red-tailed hawks have been seen in the area; must admit I can't imagine why they can't coexist - but it seems they're having issues with that - which is a real shame as WHOI put in a new cam this year - and it is spectacular!

More visits to nest seen starting April 20 - may be last year's female and a new male.

Look for return in April and eggs early to mid May

They laid two eggs, then nest was invaded by another osprey and eggs were abandoned for a while; original pair returned and resumed nesting/incubating - and then left again; not sure if both eggs are still there, and it seems unlikely that they'd be viable.

update Apr 8 - there's apparently a new male at the nest - sadly last year's mate did not return; green 7Y seems a bit inexperienced at the manly duties of delivering fish to the Lady of the Loch and sticks for the nest, but he's learning.

NOTES

Woods Hole, con't --

Lots of work on the nest May 5-8

May 16 - something that looks like an egg appeared in the nestbowl around 2 pm - but wasn't really incubated all afternoon; I suppose it could be something that just looks like an egg - or perhaps it's too late in the year for the osprey to have "incubating" hormones even if they did just lay an egg.

May 30 - for the last week or so, the male has been bringing food to the female and taking shifts incubating the eggs; the female guards the nest while the male is away, but has not done any incubating; not behavior we've seen before.

[Need to check date that male stopped incubating the eggs.]
