Ospreys Have Young

I have been watching the webcam ientently the last couple of days for signs of hatching. Yesterday, 5/30, was the first time that the female showed a lot of aggitation/nervousness, switching postions, and looking into the bowl of the nest, so I suspected things were happening. Today, I saw her pick off small pieces of fish flesh & dip her head into the nest to feed at least one young bird.
Keep watching. In a week or so we should be able to see downy heads poking above the nest as the female feeds her young.
