2008 OSPREY NEST AT CAESAR CREEK

July 21: Went back to the nest to see the immatures practice fishing & diving and whatever else young Ospreys do. They skim open water with talons down and touching, but don't seem to come up with fish yet. One did about 10 minutes of aerial acrobatics with a Turkey Vulture. Amazing to watch a young bird twist, turn, and dive. Very graceful. The youngest of the three young (more down showing on wings) spent several hours calling to be fed, but the adults did not cooperate.
Didn't see any fish being caught in over 5 hours of observation.
July 18(approx):Read on Ohio Bird posting that all 3 chicks fledged (were out of the nest, but in the area.
July 2: Three Osprey chicks doing very well. Observed 3 adults in immediate vicinity of nest.
June 9: Able to get pictures of 3 Osprey Chicks. Very small and barely seen over side of nest.
