Watching the baby osprey grow up at work. The nest in the light post in the parking lot was big. There were 2 babies turning into adults quickly. The above were taken on May 24th. We are thinking they were born in early May. It was May 16th when we could first see the little baby head pop up over the nest.
By June 1st they looked like full-grown osprey. I caught Mom feeding them both one night leaving work.
By June 16th, they were flapping their wings and sitting on the nest without a parent nearby. It was only a matter of days before they were gone.
On June 26th I was heading to my car and noticed both babies were gone. I found one of them in a nearby tree. He still has those orange eyes and white spots on the end of his wings. They still hang around the area and I see them occasionally hanging around the trees near the nest when leaving work.
