Every time I have peeked in at this nest, someone is sitting there - including now at 7:51 AM

(there must be an egg!)

Is it possible to change this thread title so that Latvian is the first word -- so it doesn't look quite so much like the thread title for the other osprey cam?

Ohh I am glad you were on vacation and not just being worked to the bone. Tuuli is in fine voice but I think the Osprey nests NEED a watcher.

I also think there should be eggs, the nest is too deep to be able to see.
She is wonderful on the nest, sometimes looking around
