It is 2 Osplets for PLO

I barely got my camera ready to go and check on our Ospreys and the second Osplet hatched at the Port Lincoln Osprey nest in Port Lincoln, Australia. It has happened before BUT it is very rare. The closer the osplets hatch the better their chances are if there is sibling rivalry.

And it has happened, according to Tiger Mozone, that all three eggs have hatched on the same day. Must find out where that was and when. But, for now, we celebrate. Welcome #2.

Osplet

Wow! Dad. Get fishing!

Thanks PLO for your streaming cam where I took this screen shot!

    Wonderful that you caught that Mary Ann! Thanks so much! Congratulations to the mom and dad at Port Lincoln
    On the second Osprey! 🐣🐣 Right behind the other one! Come on three! So close together is best against sibling rivalry!
    Praying three will hurry 🙏

    Great news! That is a FIRST for me about a nest with 3 hatches on the SAME day. What a feat! Those chicks want to come out to see the world:-)

    1. Oh, sorry. Only two hatches and 1 egg. I wish it would happen here! BUT there have been 3 hatches at a nest in 24 hours.
