Nancy L 06/25/05 09:54 pm When Gib posted the 6:01 observation, I had been watching the nest "in person" for about 45 minutes. Betty had been standing on the nest for quite a while when she finally flew off. I believe she was exercising her wings. She just flew up and around for a full 15 minutes, never out of view of the nest. I saw the RWBB challenge her quite a few times while they both flew around. AND - I saw her send a "rocket" while flying! I saw this white stuff go streaming out behind her & realized what it was. She landed on the nest @ 6 P.M. I never saw any sign of the chicks - they must have been sleeping or laying low the whole time.

Also, the name of the music group playing at the Puleston party is the Isotope Stompers. They are gentlemen of retirement age (mostly) and play in our L.I. area at many occasions.
Celeste 06/25/05 10:10 pm Thanks Nancy, it's always great to have "an up front and personal" observation.
cathy 06/26/05 06:05 pm It must be thrilling to see the nest both from a "human" (looking up) perspective and then also from an "electronic" (web cam) perspective. For millenia - humans have only had the human perspective - anything closer has been disturbing to the ospreys.
