In meanwhile the chick is overstuffed...Beaumont spoilt his one remaining kid.

Offspring returned later, the half eaten fish lies a level lower now.
16:08 Beaumont delivers the fifth fish.

17:33 He lands with headless fish number six, the chick came two minutes later.

I agree with you balistar I think also, that the chick is a girl. :wave:

That is already the second fish from today, a leftover lies there, maybe from yesterday...

Beaumont left with this fish again, the chick has still the fourth fish in his claws. :rotf:
Image

15:44 I guess re-delivery from the previous huge fish. At this time the chick is interested.

I think in meanwhile the youngster is alone still there. I've not seen Beaumont since yesterday morning, he brought a smaller fish for breakfast. The chick was eating leftovers from previous fishes yesterday in the evening. I'm a bit worry about her. She spends a lot of time on the nest, she was often still there for overnight.
I cross my fingers, that the kick to leave for migration comes soon and hopefully she learns to catch fishes for herself.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Newfoundland Ospreys

I guess, yesterday at 3.October Beaumont and his offspring are gone for their long journey. The chick overnighted again on the nest, last sight from her against 9:30. Stay safe my friends, hope for a healthy return from Beaumont and Hope next spring.

From what I read, Beaumont was together at first with an other female, which he found during last season. But suddenly she left him alone.
Later he found "Hope". That was the reason for the later breeding, how I documentated earlier Hope was a first timer.
All three eggs were viable and all hatched. Two of the chicks died on the nest, Hope consumed both later. Only one chick could make it ...but I'm happy for this one.

Thank you very much, Birdfriend, for your report and all the beautiful pictures with which you spoiled us.
I'm sorry for the loss of the two other chicks.

Wish the remained chick and Beaumont and Hope a safe journey.
See you next season :wave:
