Ospreys are incubating!

Hi all,

It is wonderful to see this pair incubating two eggs! Ospreys typically lay between 1-4 eggs per clutch. You may notice that the male and female birds share time incubating. Based on an 'average' 38-39 day incubation period we anticipate a hatch around June 5th but we should keep a close eye on the nest in the days before then as we might expect a hatch as early as June 1st! Thank you for your many posts and please join us at our online community at where you can view photos and videos and catch up on all of BRI's nests.

Have a great day!
