Here’s a family portrait from our Hog Island Osprey Nest.  Steve swooped in to deliver the fish that Rachel feeds to the chicks (taking a little for her self, of course).  Watch more feedings LIVE at: http://explore.org/live-cams/player/live-osprey-cam

Rachel feeds her chick by ripping small pieces of fish, working from the front of the catch to the tail, then carefully offers them directly to the youngster from her beak. Watch more feedings LIVE at http://goo.gl/HyqDJv

Congratulations to Rachel and Steve on the arrival of their first chick, hatched on June 5th, and revealed at 12:21am PT! We may have spotted a second pip, and as osprey eggs hatch asynchronously in the order they arrive, expect to see the next two hatchings staggered over the following days.

Pip Pip Hooray! Eggciting news from our Hog Island osprey nest: Rachel’s first laid egg has pipped, the chick inside utilizing the “egg tooth” on its beak to crack the shell into a small star-shaped hole. Keep watching live, we’re sure to see the young one emerge today or tomorrow!
