Shanta, great catch! Makes me laugh, looks like he makes a headstand. For us is it funny, but no for this poor guy.
His crop was really flat. Thank you to share this event! :thumbs:

But I have promises to keep,

Oh :blush:
Thanks to all for your nice comments!

At first I was shocked and thought he had broken his neck ... but then he starts to come back on his feet and I starts laughing and could not stop (saw a naked Osprey) :whistling:

It's a beautiful nest and the cam is so close

Today a beautiful morning and the couple starts mating, suddenly they flew out and an eagle landed on nest. Think they chased each other in the air

Unfortunately there is an sawed off branch sticking out in the middle of the nest bowl. When she rolled the egg, it bumped on this branch making a knocking sound. Hopefully it won't crack while they rolling the egg or sitting on it.

Congratulations on the 1st Egg!!
:loveshower:
Does this couple have names?

:wave: Liz01, thank you for the videos!
I love hearing the sounds that the lady makes when the egg is coming out!
The microphone is well placed!
:thumbs:
Shanta, thanks for the video of the stick landing
:shock: hopefully the egg knocking sounded worse than the hits!
I know that all of us are yelling at the screen "be careful of the egg, please!"

That branch that sticks out, prevents proper incubation and breaks the eggs!
Can somebody please saw it! I know it is a complicated situation.
