Hatchlings at New Osprey Nest Cam!

The nest cam at Smallwood State Park captured two tiny hatchlings and a parent!

As of Wednesday morning, May 26, 2021, the Osprey nest cam at Smallwood State Park revealed a second newly hatched chick! Can you tell which one in the photo is the “newborn”? Do you think the third egg will hatch? If so, when?

Keep watching at the YouTube channel to find out what happens with this fascinating family of Osprey, sometimes also called Fish Hawks.

If you see interesting behavior or a “cool pose,” take a screen capture and share it on the Southern Maryland Audubon Society Facebook Group page! We love “family photos”!
