A friend let me know that the Winter Park Osprey chicks had hatched, so I went over there on Tuesday night to see the babies.  Almost as soon as I got there, Mama bent her head over into the nest, seemed to listen for a second, and then stepped aside…and then splat! went a waste dump over the side of the nest.  It’s amazing how young they learn, hehe.  I watched the nest for about an hour and Mama let me see her baby several times.  What a cute little bald guy!
