What happened? she was so diligent sitting on those eggs in the wet weather and high winds. I have been out of the country and misses 2 weeks of the story. I expected to come home and watch the eggs hatch!!!

Marshall and Lily are back and it looks like love is in the air! 🙏🤞🤞🤞🙏 ... See MoreSee Less

For real??? I thought we lost Marshall, unless this is an imposter!😊

At it again this morning!!! 👍🏻🙏🏻

I checked about 20 minutes ago and they were mating. Not that I'm a peeping Tom but I clicked on the video and there they were. 😳 Jokes aside, this makes me hopeful.

How long after they mate does she lay eggs? We have that storm coming tonight and I don’t want her to have to sit on that nest. She and the eggs will blow away. 70 mph winds.

Per the Avian Report: Osprey pairs mate quite often. Copulating begins while they construct their nests or rebuild them if they happen to return to the same nest from last year. Observations show that pairs copulate between 88 and 338 times before laying eggs. The majority of copulations occur in the morning on the nest or nearby. In the days leading up to the female laying eggs, copulations become even more frequent. Although the number of copulations may seem high, not all copulations result in cloacal contact, meaning the male often mounts the female for fake copulations. Field observations found that only 39% of mountings resulted in actual cloacal contact. During the days leading up to egg-laying, the female may be most receptive to mating and egg fertilization may occur. On these days, the male stays very close to the female to ensure that he is the only one mating with her and ensuring paternity.

So glad you posted this. I didn't see any eggs yesterday so she must have just laid it.

Awesome‼️

If you expand these pictures you’ll be able to see that the remaining two eggs have been damaged with sections of shell missing. In the top picture a dejected Lily surveys the carnage. 😢 ... See MoreSee Less

Driven from nest by high winds?

Have they abandoned the nest?

We could always count on them for a happy season. So sorry.

I think the female left the nest due to hunger. People noted that the male had not been seen in a couple days.

Back on the eggs, but I’m not sure they are still viable. I read the eggs can go up to 2 weeks but that’s prior to starting incubation. Once incubation starts they must be kept warm. I’m no expert though. Been watching them for the last couple years. You just assume everything will work out but like life that’s not always the case. Still 🙏🏻 her mate returns and all will be ok.

3:10 pm Thursday. Male is BACK and Lily is giving him a piece of her mind! ("talking" to him) He's looking all around and down and ignoring her.

Heartbreaking. 😔

Is this the NJ Wetlands nest?

Don’t know what happened. Eggs gone. Possibly broken. Hard to see.

That’s a-shame ,better luck next year.

POssibly predated. Maybe buried. Sometimes ospreys hide their eggs under vegetation when alone.

We have seen the same thing at our BL Osprey Cam, so cams like this are so important to get a bigger picture of what is going on. It seems that the persistent NE winds and associated swell, turbidity, etc has affected osprey foraging in the ocean and incubating adults are being forced to abandon eggs to try and find food to sustain themselves. It seems that it will be a bad year. The first since 2003.

In North Idaho we have not had a normal arrival of our Pete and Sandy and tons of drama. No great nest and no eggs either.🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Hi

Sunday 9:55 a.m. The male is back and it sounds like he's calling for her. Maybe they'll stay the summer?

They are both back!
