This fledgling osprey is testing its wings. They are getting closer to flying. I took this 7-14-2022.

Bringing a Fish

These osprey eyases are growing in size and hunger. One of the eyases seems to be expressing need when seeing its father landing with a fish in its talons.

Growing

This eyas osprey is growing rapidly. The other eyas is under the shade of its parent. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.

Leaving the Nest with Two Watching

Sibling Rivalry

2 baby osprey arguing
When observing birds, it is not unusual to see conflict take place. It could be territorial or over food. In a nest, young birds such as these two osprey eyases are in conflict for who will dominate and get more food. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, California.

Two osprey Parents and Their Two Eyass

2 osprey parents and 2 babies
The eyass are under a week old. Yesterday I saw three, but it was too far away to get a decent photo of them. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.
