  1. baby #2 looks like he’s not feeling well. audrey had a big fish-looked like a menhaden-baby 1 is chowing but baby 2 has just been laying there, barely picking up his head. i hope he is ok.

    • It also looks like the camera has shifted and we can only see the right half of the nest though everyone in their current position in the nest is in view. Is this intentional?

  2. The little one really does look sick. Please someone take a professional look and post the findings!

  3. I HOPE AND PRAY THE LITTLE ONE MAKES IT, BUT I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER YEAR, THIS IS PAIN, AND TORTURE . JUST BEGS FOR FOOD, SEEMS TO ME THERE COULD BE AN OSPREY RESCUE, THEY DO IT FOR EAGLES.

  4. I watched with broken heart last year and it fell out for little Ozzie. As the Conservancy (COM) told us ours, is to observe not intervene…difficult as it may be, I UNDERSTAND. Nature has its ways. MOTHER Nature knows best.

    • I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT OZZIE, AND I DON’T WANT TO. ONE CAN OBSERVE, AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN ONE CAN INTERVENE, THAT NOT BEING MY CALL. I CAN HOWEVER SUGGEST WHAT I HAVE SEEN IN THE PAST, AND YES I TOO KNOW MOTHER NATURE KNOWS BEST. GOD LOVES THE ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE THAT HE HAS GIVEN US AS A GIFT, IT IS IN HIS NAME I THANK HIM EACH DAY FOR THIS LITTLE ONE.THE EAGLES THAT I SAW RESCUED, COULD HAVE BEEN JUST LEFT THERE TO DIE, BUT THEY WERE NOT, THEY WERE RESCUED IN VIRGINIA, AT THE WILDLIFE RESERVE, AND LATER RELEASED, AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN, I WILL CONTINUE TO THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE WILL DO FOR THIS LITTLE ONE, AND ALL HIS CREATIONS. MAYBE YOU HAVE HEARD OF THOSE EAGLES, THEY WERE CALLED THE ROCK STARS, AND THEY WERE SAVED.

  5. JOELY, PLEASE KNOW I AM NOT ACTUALLY THERE, BUT I FIND MYSELF THANKING GOD EVERYDAY ALL DAY FOR GETTING FOOD FOR THE LITTLE ONE, AND SAVINGS THE POOR BABY, IT IS BRUTAL. I STILL SAY THERE COULD .BE A RESCUE IF NECESSARY, I HAVE SEEN AN EAGLE RESCUE WHEN THE MOTHER WOULD NOT FEED THE BABIES. I DID SEE A GLIMPSE OF FOOD BEING GIVEN THIS AM, I WILL BE WATCHING, PAINFUL AS IT IS TO SEE. JOIN ME IN ASKING GOD TO SAVE LITTLE ONE .

  6. I WATCHED MAMA REFUSE TO FEED LITTLE ONE LAST NIGHT, ATE IT HERSELF, THIS MORNING AFTER FEEDING NUMBER ONE, SHE FINALLY FED THE LITTLE ONE, SO I KNOW THERE HAS BEEN A FEEDING THIS MORNING, PRAISE THE LORD FOR THAT !! WANTING LITTLE ONE TO GET TOUGH, AND ASSERT !!!

    • WELL ONCE AGAIN FOOD HAS BEEN SERVED, WITH LITTLE ONE LAST AGAIN, BUT AT ;EAST MAMA IS FEEDING LITTLE ONE SOME, BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR ME. I GUESS SHE WILL CONTINUE TO FEED BOTH. MAYBE THIS IS HOW IT WORKS, JUST WANT THE LITTLE ONE TO MAKE IT !

  7. little one will be fine. i recall watching last year-as i posted on the next blog-ozzie had it much worse then this little one and was much weaker. it was a terrible struggle for him but he made it when no-one thought he would. think of all natures babies born or hatched every year that we do not get to see on camera-no one is there to intervene and they do just fine. this is ‘gods’ and mother natures way. give nature a little credit (and com family and the cc). more times then not it has been shown that human intervention does more harm then good. blessed be…

  8. ONE AGAIN JUST NOW LITTLE ONE HAS BEEN FED AGAIN, THANK YOU LORD !! I AM GETTING THE POINT ABOUT INTERVENTION, I CAN STILL VOICE MY OPINION, IF THAT IS ALRIGHT??? WHERE DO YOU THINK MOTHER NATURE COMES FROM, THE GOOD LORD ABOVE, AND OF COURSE THESE WONDERFUL PEOPLE DESERVE TREMENDOUS CREDIT FOR WHAT THEY DO. . YOU SAY WHAT YOU WANT, AND I WILL ALSO.

  9. LOVED SEEING LITTLE ONE EAT TODAY, VERY HUNGRY LITTLE ONE, SEEMED TO FINALLY GET FULL !!GROWING FINALLY !!! YEAH EVERYONE IS EATING, HOPE IT LAST !!! THANK YOU LORD !!

  10. EVERYONE HAS BEEN FED AGAIN , LARGE FISH, LITTLE ONE WANTED MORE, BUT THE DELIVERY MAN MOVED STICKS IN THE WAY, AND THEN TOOK THE REST .OF THE FISH, ALL IS WELL , AND FULL I SUPPOSE, THANK YOU LORD FOR ANOTHER GOOD MEAL FOR ALL.

  11. FOOD HAS AGAIN BEEN SERVED, AND LITTLE ONE HAS EATEN SO MUCH, AND WANTS MORE , MUST BE GOING THROUGH A GROWTH SPURT, LOVE THE NEWLY FOUND ATTITUDE !!!EVERYONE FED, AND NOW NESTING DOWN . LOVE TO SEE EVERYONE SAFE, AND FED !!!THANK YOU LORD FOR THIS BLESSING !!!

  12. EVERYONE HAS EATEN THIS MORNING, WITH SPITZ, NOW HAVING MINI FITS FOR FOOD !!THIS IS A GOOD THING. LOVE IT WHEN THEY ALL EAT. LOTS OF NESTING ALL THE TIME !! MAMA MUST BE EXHAUSTED !!

  13. EVERYONE HAD A MEAL EARLIER, BUT IT WAS A DOOSEY, ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE GOING ON, THE CHILDREN WOULD LAY DOWN, WHEN THE OVERHEAD DANGER WAS APPROACHING !! GOOD BEHAVIOR. THIS SPITZ HAS LEARNED A TRICK OR TWO, I ACTUALLY SAW, WAIT DO WE KNOW THE SEX YET?? ANYWAY SPITZ TOOK FOOD RIGHT OUT OF BREEZEY’S MOUTH, TOO FUNNY !! THESE ARE GOOD PARENTS, I AM AMAZED AT THE CONSTANT WORK AUDREY DOES !!TOM SWOOPS IN AND LOOKS GOOD FOR A FEW, AND OFF, JUST LIKE A MAN !!I PRAY THINGS CONTINUE TO GO WELL!!STORM ON THE WAY !!DO WE HAVE EQUIPMENT FOR ALL OF THEM?? TO SOME OF YOU, JUST KIDDING !!!

  14. ONCE AGAIN FOOD HAS BEEN SERVED, AND LITTLE SPITZ, HAS BECOME QUITE THE MASTER AT SNATCHING FOOD, AND GETTING SO STUFFED, CAN HARDLY MOVE !! I THINK EVERYONE HAS BEEN FED, AND EVERYONE IS VERY VOCAL ABOUT IT, MAY IT CONTINUE TO BE LIE THIS !! A BLESSING !!
