It’s Official – The Last Trimester!

Ok, Ospreys don’t have trimesters, but Rachel and Steve can start expecting hatchlings very soon!

The three eggs were laid a few days apart with the second laid on April 30th. Osprey eggs incubate for an average of 38 days. We are now in day 31!

Sometime in the coming week, we can expect the tiny Ospreys to start appearing. The eggs will be shuffled around beneath their parents with no visible way to distinguish between them until you can watch them hatch in the same order they were laid.
