#Hatchwatch Enters Day 3

Screen cap taken this morning of a wet osprey waiting on an egg to hatch.

It’s a gorgeous morning in RVA as we await the emergence of baby osprey No. 1 from its egg. The weather looks like it will turn nasty over the weekend — rainy and much cooler. Today, Day 3 of #hatchwatch, could be the big day! Then again, it might not. Afterall, our friend April the giraffe officially took forever to birth her baby last week.

And don’t forget: Tomorrow egg No. 2 goes on the clock (assuming standard osprey incubation period of 34-40 days). Gird your loins, Richmond, if you thought just one #hatchwatch was exciting, imagine waiting on two…

In the meantime, enjoy the above pic of the cam site from our friend Ted Elmore (taken from the Manchester Bridge).

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
