Stopping by Osprey Cam on a Snowy Day

You have to wonder if Maggie and Walker are cursing their early return from South America today. To update: RVA’s favorite osprey pair are taking turns sitting on two eggs (with possibly one more to come) through the snow and wind. The good news is that they are evolutionarily adapted to handle this. Man, it sure looks cold, though! Follow the action at RVAOspreyCam.com.

Here are some pics:

Maggie on the nest this morning.

 

For a few moments, the eggs were left unattended when Maggie left to go hunt (presumably).

 

Then Walker flew in to take over the incubation duties.

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?
