Second Egg of 2006 (4/17/06)

In this clip, the fourth egg arrives on April 23 at approximately 1:01 in the afternoon local time. The female appears uncomfortable and the contractions begin, the egg appears to have been deposited about 4 minutes into the clip. Then the osprey stands and the new, mostly white egg can be seen.

Fourth egg — (7 minutes 1 second)

Egg Destroyed (5/1/06)

Starting at around 6:35 AM on May 1, the osprey seems to be fussing with the eggs, then possibly eating something. It then flies off and can be seen dropping a broken egg as it leaves the nest.

Egg destroyed — (2 minutes 10 second)

The First Hatchling (5/23/06)

This clip is actually 12 short clips put together; you will notice that it jumps from time to time. The actual time span is just about 2 hours, but it has been condensed to just over 14 minutes. The first chick to hatch shows a crack and small hole and as the clip continues the chick can be seen in a half opened shell, then almost completely free. The chick is totally free of the shell at approximately 5:00 PM local; the adult can be seen pulling off the last of it. The two adults get to take a good look at the new chick at the end of the clip, 5:09 PM local.

First hatchling — (14 minutes 28 second)

Family Hour at the Nest (6/4/06)

This is a short look at family life in the nest in early June.

Family Time — (6 minutes 14 seconds)

Hey, It’s My Turn! (6/22/06)

A quote from Tiger, June 22:

Yes I think I will have to revise my all time favourite moment in watching this cam. I think it will now be that wonderful moment when Flag pecked Star in the rump and somehow Star blamed Stripe and gave him a good hiding. Best of all Flag snuck in and got a meal.

My Turn — (3 minutes 42 seconds)

Light Show (7/18/06)

Clip of the thunderstorm that knocked out the camera on the evening of July 18. In the non-saturating lightning flashes, you can see the chicks huddled in the bowl of the nest. A little past 7 minutes in, a blue flash is visible and the video stops functioning, although audio continues. The video was recovered the next day through a power cycle of the camera.

Light Show — (7 minutes)

The First Fledgling (7/20/06)

The first of the chicks to fledge does a few warm up exercises and then just takes off.

The Second Fledgling (7/24/06)

Second fledgling — (4 minutes 42 seconds)

The Second Fledgling Gets it Right This Time (7/25/06)

The second of the chicks to fledge does a few warm-up exercises getting good height, then it takes off to the west and circles the nest, leaving the remaining chick to itself.

The Last of the Chicks Flies for the First Time (8/3/06)

The third chick to fledge does a few warm-up exercises while a sibling eats, then it takes off to the west and circles the nest, leaving the remaining chick to watch as it circles the nest. Not very impressed, the dining bird returns to the meal.

Third fledge — (3 minutes)
