the osprey watch

This spring and summer, I’ve been watching an osprey family nesting on a platform at Belle Haven Marina in Alexandria. The adults have been there since March, and three chicks hatched in May. One of the chicks did not survive, but the other two fledged in mid-July.

The watch will continue until the birds join the fall migration in September.
