The time has changed to Daylight Savings Time.... but the nest clock has NOT. It will likely remain on Standard Time, as it did last year.....

General Information

In our search for names from the old Chinook jargon (Chinuk wawa) of the indigenous people in this region, as previous seasons.

We have found two names that fit perfectly.... not so easy with two chicks born on the same day and who are so very much alike and close in looks:

So we have named our chicks:
TOKETEE (Pretty / Handsome / Graceful) for Chick #1, who is all of these things, as they both are.

TSEE (Sweet) for Little#2, who is definitely that, as they both are, both so much alike in every way!

 

HATCH POOL / EGG #1                (xxxxxxx) = expired guess

(Post your choice of hatch date on the chat, and it will be recorded here.  You may have as many "re-do's" as you wish.... we're easy!)

20:27 James Females generally lose weight during season, I don't think Naha is
20:27 jewel lang Yes, a lot of fishing, all by Bruce..... To be fair, some were tiny, but not many. No wonder these kids are growing so fast!
20:28 James Even if I had 1 sibling to split that many with I couldn't eat it all
20:31 jewel lang Hahaaa.... I looked in on Captiva quite a lot today.... so much fun watching a youngster discover the wild blue yonder! They are so full of themselves!! And Darling has recovered from the shock...

08:14 Kristy A Aww.
08:15 jewel lang Hi Kristy!

08:19 jewel lang Both kids on the west rim.... Toketee is closest, Tsee is closer to Bruce
08:24 Kristy A They have names now? I thought there was gonna be a poll and we vote for the names.
08:24 Kristy A It's good to know who #1 and #2 is, thank you.
08:30 jewel lang That is what we did last year, Kristy, but this year it just all came together so well, and not a lot of chatters, so....
08:31 Kristy A Aah okay Jewel. I understand that. 👍🏻
08:31 Kristy A Hello Toketee and Tsee!
08:32 Kristy A I like the word for sweet/Tsee.
08:32 jewel lang Toketee is also the name of a town in western Oregon, so a well-used word. And Tsee is the call of the Blue Tit, a very sweet little bird in the UK
08:33 Kristy A Aww.
08:36 jewel lang Correction: This was not Bruce with a fish, this was Naha with a lichen stick! I must need glasses.....🧐
08:37 jewel lang 8.36 Tsee on the left, Toketee on the right
08:38 Kristy A Aww.
09:01 jewel lang 8.55 Bruce in with a small redtail surfperch, partially deheaded. Naha calls to the kids, and Toketee steps up. Tsee is still with Bruce.... relaxed
09:05 MsBBird Congrats on our names !! Lovely to see them doing so well 🙂
09:06 jewel lang 8.56 Feeding begins, Toketee eating, Tsee still visiting with Bruce..... Tsee notices the feeding, but not all that interested. 9.00 finally Tsee steps up to eat, too late, feeding over 9.00
09:06 jewel lang Hi MsBird.... a relief to stop calling them numbers!😂
09:07 jewel lang 9.02 Naha flies off to the west, Bruce on the nest with the kids
09:11 jewel lang 9.06 Naha brings a looong stick in, placing it on the west rim
09:29 jewel lang 9.27 Bruce flies in a long trailing clump of green seaweed
09:47 jewel lang 9.45 Toketee backs over Tsee in an effort to get correctly positioned for a PS..... finally pointed west, mission accomplished! Bruce watches in fascination.....😂
09:52 Kristy A Hello and thank you Ms Bbird! 😆 lol
10:02 Kristy A 9:58 Bruce is back outta the nest.
10:45 Kristy A Ah good boy.
10:47 Kristy A 10:33 Naha's out briefly. She goes to the camera post at some point.
10:47 Kristy A 10:44 Bruce is in with a headless fish. Naha flies down to take it.

12:20 jewel lang Lots of helicopter action today.... there is a chopper base just a bit north of here.....
12:22 jewel lang 12.21 Tsee sitting on the north rim next to mama.... I'm a big kid now!
12:37 jewel lang 12.36 Bruce in with a stick, tries it out on a couple rims.....
12:39 jewel lang 12.38 After a couple minutes of Naha's persistent fish-calling, Bruce flies out to the north. We'll see.....
12:58 Kristy A Oh yes we shall.
12:59 Kristy A I didn't know about the helicopter base just a bit North of here.
13:02 jewel lang 13.01 Naha keeping an eye on something(s) flying above....
13:05 jewel lang Yes, Kristy, about a mile north of the park, right across the highway from the estuary. All birds must be quite used to them I'd think.... except when they are extremely low
13:08 jewel lang 13.05 Looks like Bruce brought in a fish while the feed was down for a few minutes.... can't tell what it is.
13:09 jewel lang 13.03 (est.) Feeding starts, both chicks eating..... 13.08 feeding ended. A small meal for both kids
13:22 Kristy A Yeah Jewel, I agree. They're accustomed to them.
13:46 Vivian Steele Did these two get names?and who is who?
13:46 Vivian Steele Not that I have much luck telling them apart.
13:50 jewel lang Hi Vivian.... yes, and that was the hard part, choosing names for chicks that are almost exactly alike! But here ya go:
13:50 jewel lang In our search for names from the old Chinook jargon (Chinuk wawa) of the indigenous people in this region, we have found two names that fit perfectly.... So we have gone ahead and named our babies:
13:50 jewel lang TOKETEE (Pretty / handsome / graceful) for #1, who is all of these things, as they both are. TSEE (Sweet) for Little#2, who is definitely that, as they both are, both so much alike in every way!
13:59 jewel lang 13.57 Naha vocalizes several times, then flies off to the east.... (sounded more like a fish song than alerting....) Tsee looks up and comments while tracking Naha
14:18 Kristy A Yeah I'm right there with you Vivian unfortunately. Can't tell them apart either.
14:20 jewel lang Here is a good look: Toketee closest, Tsee looking over the west rim
14:20 jewel lang 14.19 After a lot of alerting from Naha, Bruce launches off the cam post to the west, the chicks pancaked...
15:11 Kea Meyers Duggan Hello! The names for these little ones are beautiful. And my how they've grown since I looked in just a few days ago!
15:14 jewel lang Hi Kea.... nice to see you! Yes, I think they are changing hourly.... lol
15:20 Kea Meyers Duggan It sure seems that way! They almost look like totally different birds! My goodness!
15:22 jewel lang I love this phase, so soft and fluffy looking with all the pinfeathers blooming! But it's a pretty itchy time for them, I'll bet.....
15:30 Kea Meyers Duggan For sure. Look at all those prickly little tailfeathers! I've always assumed they are pointy and uncomfortable.
15:31 Kea Meyers Duggan I can't tell who is who yet, but the one whose beak is facing the camera has been doing the cutest little stretches
15:33 jewel lang Hahaaa.... that is Toketee. there is a white space between the head stripes and the mark on the aback of the head. Tsee's middle stripe goes clear through and is a bit darker.
15:34 jewel lang That difference in markings has been consistent for some time now, I am hoping that it continues into adulthood.... This is the first time I have been able to tell chicks apart, weirdly
15:35 jewel lang Otherwise they are almost mirror images of each other....
15:51 Kea Meyers Duggan I'll have to study these growing bobs more closely 🙂
15:55 jewel lang 15.52 Naha flies off alerting, shrieking in the distance.... then finally back to the cam post
15:56 jewel lang (Or maybe Bruce cam in to the cam post to cover the nest? I still hear vocals in the distance.....)
16:11 jewel lang The Seaside Osprey Nest Website: https://seaside-osprey.com/
16:23 jewel lang 16.21 Bruce brings a huge starry flounder in for dinner.... Naha preps it and the kids line up
16:24 jewel lang 16.22 Feeding starts, Tsee closest to the cam, and Toketee eating eagerly for a change, instead of being distracted.
16:30 Kristy A Hello Kea! Oh nice!
16:35 jewel lang 16.33.45 Tsee is trying to self feed on a string of something.... spa-gutti?
16:35 Kristy A 😆 lol!!
16:36 Kristy A Slurp it up!
16:37 jewel lang 🤢
16:37 Kristy A Jewel 😆
16:45 jewel lang 16.38 Naha has a lot of trouble with a looong strand of innards, Tsee tries to help her out several times....
16:47 Vivian Steele They are so polite at feeding time. Both boys?
16:47 Vivian Steele Hi Kristy. We seem to pass in the night.
16:47 jewel lang We'll never really know.... a bit early to tell anyway. I think it's successful delayed incubation, really
16:48 Vivian Steele That can't have hurt. Except trying to tell them apart.
16:57 Kristy A Oh yes we do Vivian!
16:58 Kristy A Yeah we'll never know the genders unfortunately.
17:10 jewel lang 17.05 Naha ends the feeding by distracting the kids with a stick.... she steps backward onto Toketee, who yells at her making her fly/jump over the nest!
17:12 Kristy A lol!
17:13 jewel lang That was a super loooong feeding.... a very tough and bony fish, hard to get meat from it. Poor Naha was worn out!
17:13 Kristy A 17:10 Naha flies sideways outta the nest.
17:14 Kristy A Yup.
17:14 jewel lang (Alerting in the distance....)
17:14 jewel lang BBL.... need to get some things done....
17:15 Kristy A Okay.
17:36 Kristy A 17:26 Naha floats down into the nest.
18:19 jewel lang 17.44 a second feeding on the big flatfish begins.... Tsee takes a PS break, and moves a wad of fluffy lichen, then goes back to the feed. 18.15 feeding ends
18:30 jewel lang 18.28 Bruce brings in a very large surfperch.... as she prepped it he flew off fast, and she followed, with the fish, both alerting! Back she came, with the fish, very wary and nervous....

REPORT FROM LOCAL JOHN PENFIELD:

​​this afternoon, I saw an osprey circling about 5 minutes around a large tree about 250 yd South of the nest . I heard another large bird calling from the tree, but I couldn't tell what bird it wasI don't think the other bird was an osprey. I didn't recognize its call.  ​​the Osprey seemed a bit agitated and kept heading towards the tree. I have no idea if it was naha or bruce. 

I don't think it was a crow. I listen to some Eagle calls online, but I couldn't tell if that was it.  ​​there are bald eagles here. 

(Thank you so much, John, I was thinking eagle, for some reason, if only because of how agitated and upset Naha was, and how long she was on guard. Bruce was probably nearby, and she guarded the nest.  ​​I think every osprey sees the eagle as an enemy, instinctually.... they do steal chicks. We have never seen an eagle here, other than one visiting the nest in the winter a few years back.... ​​I believe that Bruce tailed that intruder, whatever it was, and stayed on it, while Naha stayed with the nest and the chicks. Bruce was gone most of the afternoon, off nest, very unusual for him. Well done!)

Feeding begins, in the rain, kids lined up properly, all eating

4:43 am Feeding ended, bobs all full... a great start to a nasty rainy day... full crops!
4:44 am

Naha resumes brooding... the fish remains on the nest. Maybe she will have another chance to feed before the hard rains....

5:35 am 2

Naha steps off the eggs, starts another feeding.... trying to get as much fish in them as she can (She must sense the weather ahead...) All lined up and eating again Feeds Extended Video

Bruce (L,Headless)

11:08 am This storm is really ramping up.... gale force winds, and driving rain. The level of commitment of these birds to their young is amazing....
11:37 am

Bruce blows in on the wind with a small fish... Naha gets up, gets blown away (literally) and lands back down on the nest, the Bobs are up and eager in the wind and rain.....

Bruce (S,Whole)
11:39 am 5

Feeding begins, little#3 is in front this time. For the first time I am glad the older two are leaning on #3, kinda holds him down!

11:40 am

Naha cuts the meal short, just too windy I think. She settles over them again.... they can't be very hungry, with all they've had today. Bruce finishes the bit of fish

12:06:371 The high wind blows part of the west rim over onto Naha as she broods. She holds fast, doesn't let it bother her. Wow....
12:40 pm Oh wow, the nest is starting to come apart.... now the east rim sticks are on Naha's back..... This is some wind!
2:04 pm The storm is letting up a little, enough for Naha to prop herself up a bit and give some air to the chicks.... just a short break, then back to hard winds
2:08 pm

Bruce shows up with a fish, stands on the wood on Naha's back, gets no response from her, so he flies off again. She is all business....

Bruce (S,Whole)
2:14 pm Bruce in again with his little fish, which he eats there on the nest. Naha remains tight on the chicks.
3:29 pm

Bruce in with a redtail... where is he finding these fish in this storm???

Bruce (L,Whole)
3:30:101

Right after Naha gets up, two chicks bounce up, and the 3rd doesn't move. From what I can see, that chick doesn't move at all during the whole feeding. I think we may have lost #3. Please see In Memoriam Extended Video on 2024 Nest Statistics (Top of obsboard above)

3:31 pm 6

Feeding started, totally hidden behind Naha... I see tops of heads, bobbing, so I guess they are all eating! C'mon Bruce, knock that stick off the edge....

3:37 pm

Feeding ended, still not sure what I was seeing... I think the chick I saw not moving during the feeding was #3... Will have to wait until Naha gets up again to be sure.

5:16 pm

Bruce flies in with a large surfperch in tow. Chirping to Naha, she is not interested.... He flies off with it. He will likely bring it back deheaded....

Bruce flies in with the headless surfperch. Naha considers it.... She steps off the chicks to take the fish. The 2 bobs line up.... and the loss is confirmed

5:48 pm 7

Feeding begins... both chicks alert and active.... (looks like another pregnant fish)

5:54 pm

Naha ends the feeding, resumes brooding. Bruce grabs the fish... and life goes on...
