||Hi Tiger is Betty2 the new one this year or last year? The one I see in the nest now looks like the Betty from 05 ... how are you telling them apart besides the size?

||I am assuming that Betty 2 is Betty (05). I a just recognising them by sight. I do not see the original Betty around today!

||It is quite difficult because of the wind just now but I still think it is new Betty!

||I would agree with you thanks for help.

||The female I saw yesterday seemed to span about 3/4 of the nest's diameter. The one today spans about 1/2. I'll have to see if this observation holds up as they come and go.

||Female of 2005 has a small circle of white in the swatch of black over her forehead and a very well defined necklace.Camera has been on all day in this office and haven't seen any Osprey intruders.

||I think Betty 05 also has a more pronounced necklace than Betty 04

||I agree about the necklace...Betty 05 has a very distinct splash of "freckles" across her chest. I've also noticed the white patch that Tim mentioned. On top of that I think Betty 04 had a fiercer look about her somehow, something to do with the markings around her eyes?
