:wave: Birdfriend, i don’t know how to post a YouTube link. :blush:
I’m hoping that someone else will.
Also, the camera is in Australia not North America. But I think that people will check here too.
It's okay, Cessie. :wave: Hellem was fast to help. :D

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.

:wave: Chimega, wow, that Magpie’s vocalizations were fun to hear. I’m so glad that you caught it! Also, the Hawk was super mellow. 8-)
Thank you for the video of the Australian Ospreys!! I think that the audio there will be fixed soon. Fingers crossed.

Magpies talk a lot. :rotf:

I hope they get the Port Lincoln sound fixed very soon. It's rather boring and difficult for me to watch with no sound. :laugh:

:wave: Chimega, so true regarding the South Australian Osprey Nest. It’s boring without sound and without showing the surroundings for part of the day. As much as I love watching the chicks, up close, it would be nice to see a wider shot sometimes.
Even before the livestream, the sound on the videos that they would post, was weak and with a lot of wind noise. Anyway, hopefully they get the kinks worked out and this turns into a good Osprey nest to watch in the Autumn months.
Thank you so much for your videos!! :thumbs:

You're welcome, Cessie :hi:

I can try adding music. I'm not sure if youtube has that feature anymore but I'll check it out! :laugh:

TY for sharing these nice videos. Looks like the osprey chicks are doing well so far.
The juvenile hawks are regularly beautiful visitors at the Carlo nest in the autumn. :thumbs:

Hi Birdfriend! :wave:

You're very welcome! I started adding background music to the Port Lincoln videos because of there being no sound, otherwise. I hope it is pleasant for people to hear.

The Osprey chicks are growing fast and I understand there is sibling rivalry going on. I know I have seen some people uploading videos that say there is fighting going on but I haven't seen it, myself, yet. Soon, they should be past that stage, I think.

I really love the Red-tailed Hawks that are coming to the Charlo nest right now. The one who screamed has to be a female. :rotf: Well, she's huge. Much bigger than the other one, from what I can tell.

I joined a raptor ID group a few years ago and one of the men in there took me under his wing, so to speak. He is one of the best known authorities on Hawks in the USA and I am so honored. He has talked to me via private message several times and we talk about everything, not just Hawks or birds. He and his colleagues developed a wonderful app for mobile phones to help people identify Hawks and Eagles. I will post the link to HawkWatch in here and anyone who wants to visit the site can do so. I can personally vouch for him and his associates as they are top notch in the field of Raptors but especially Hawks.

https://hawkwatch.org/

I got the app from the google apps store and it's free plus there are versions for both Android and also iPhones. Apps are on this page. https://hawkwatch.org/blog/item/1164-ra ... p-now-free

Have fun, everyone! :wave:

Port Lincoln Ospreys

Oh, I saw a aggressive peck- attack from the chick behind against the sibling in front, not nice. Before they ate together. Dad brought breakfish. It reminds me to the drama there two seasons ago. :faint: :help:
Image

I've read that Dad was not okay during the last week and delivered lesser fish. I really hope for a good outcome there.

I made a copy from chat there:

Port_Lincoln Osprey
​We are so lucky that this nest is so accessible for us. I know some people are against feeding but while Dad was sick I saw no problem in putting a fish there. Each time Dad flew down immediately.

Port_Lincoln Osprey
​And fed it to the chicks. Once he's back to normal I'm sure it won't happen. We will be banding them on Tuesday so it will be good opportunity to check them out and make sure all is OK.
Just now Dad delivered already the second fish, the mobbed chick took at first some bites, then left and goes in submissive modus. As the older one was sated, he/she got a good share. :thumbs:
