So where is Ervie?

You guessed it! Yes, he is still down in the cave with Dad. He has been there for several days, sometimes flitting back and forth to the nest. Will Dad feed him again today? Dad brought him three fish yesterday!

One thing I noticed was how interesting Dad’s plumage is. We never get to see him other than flying in quickly with a food delivery and out as quick as he can to save his talons. His feathers are gorgeous.

Ervie and Dad seem to be enjoying one another’s company immensely. Maybe this is the first time that Dad has had a chance to spend time with one of his children.

They move a little. Both flew off this morning as if an intruder was in the area. I was told that there are some Cormorants nearby. Wondering where Mum is? She was last seen on camera on 22 January. I suspect she is over on the Old Barge and letting the boys have the nest barge for male bonding. Smart.

Ervie is fine. He is decidedly a home body.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you are all very well. Stay safe. See you soon. My Friday newsletter may be late. I am hoping to get out and get more birdseed before more snow arrives!

Thank you to the Port Lincoln Osprey Project for their streaming cam where I took my screen captures of Ervie and Dad today.

    1. We never do get to see the Dads much. It sure is a treat! Glad to hear you only had rain. That is wonderful.
