Night Hatchling

Check out this short video of our first Osprey chick from last year’s nesting.

Rachel keeps a watchful eye on chick #1 as it emerges from its shell over the course of a night. Once out, around 1:32, s/he begins to build the strength to lift its head up. If only human babies developed so fast!

See Rachel and Steve prepare the nest for this year’s eggs on the Hog Island Live Cam.
