I went back to check on the young osprey I photographed a couple of weeks ago to see how he was doing. Turns out it has a sibling. I had a hard time trying to figure out just what was going on at first. He should have been a pretty large bird by now.,
It looked like maybe the older was was hoisting the young to the top of the nest to dump him out or something. I think what really happened was the adult bird dropped off some chow for the little ones and some how the young one got a lift from the older one. Not sure if that is normal or not, but I did read that when Osprey’s have their young, they spread it out over time. A new one can hatch before the old one has left the nest.
These pictures are not in any particular order, but taken over a period of about 30 minutes.
Have a happy bird day.
