Thread subject: FYI: Four Eggs!
Name Date Message
Fred W! 04/14/04 06:35 pm FYI: 4 eggs in our Osprey nest now (See Obs. Page)
Mickey 04/14/04 07:28 pm Hi Fred. It kinda looks like a Easter Egg basket up there. They were going at it for 3 weeks. I wonder how many more she`ll lay :) I think I will go away for the month of June so I dont have to watch whats going to happen in that nest.
Cecilia 04/14/04 07:32 pm My thoughts exactly Mickey :-(
Shelley 04/14/04 07:36 pm Does anyone know if she's ever actually had four successful chicks? From what I read, once one egg didn't hatch at all and once, a third chick was pecked to death by #1 and #2. I realize she doesn't control the number of eggs she lays but it's too bad that nature seems to give her more than will actually be viable. You'd think that some kind of natural adaptation would have occurred.

Shelley, always trying to avoid sadness and controversy....
Matt 04/14/04 09:06 pm Shelley, the fourth egg did hatch last year. Though the chick did not make it through the first day or two after hatching. Not sure why. Most likely it was due to the mother not spending much time on the egg because she had to fee the other three chicks.

But let us not forget that two did survive. Let us focus on what we have rather what we don't have.
