Woolwich, Maine

August 6, 2013


The osprey cam at the Taste of Maine Restaurant was still down, so I stopped by after work to check on the chicks (this time I chose a lobster roll to go).

There was only one chick on the nest - I think the older one - but I did discover another osprey perched in the large pine tree on the other side of the road. It might have been the other chick - but I didn't see any speckled feathers, so it's probably more likely that it was one of the adults, keeping an eye on the nest. I suspect the other chick was watching the other adult - to see just how he(?) catches all those fish!

I apologize for not providing a complete story. The picture from the monitor is while I was in the restaurant picking up my order - and I suspect I missed a delivery as the chick on the nest seemed to be eating when I got outside. All pictures click bigger.


If you'd like to see additional pictures from this nest, and from the osprey nest "around the corner" on the Sasanoa River, you can use the link for my Local Wildlife Home Page at the top of the page to see an index to all the visits.
