The Osprey Family Is Proud To Announce …

… the birth of 2 chicks.

Carolyn Doan — whose photos of Westport’s favorite raptor have captivated and educated “06880” readers — reports she saw 2 little heads bobbing in the nest this morning.

“Just barely,” she notes. “They are tiny.”

The Audubon Society steward saw chicks as well, Carolyn says.

Like 21st-century males everywhere, the father is doing what he can to help. Yesterday, Carolyn photographed him bringing food — a fish tail, she thinks — to their home, near Fresh Market and Terrain.

“06880” readers joyfully welcome the new additions to town.

      Thanks for this link. Our son Jeff and his wife Laura were Missoula residents until a year ago. My most exciting bird watching experiences were in Montana. Loved the Osprey’s and watching them dive for fish and we saw both Bald and Golden Eagles. Magnificent birds.

  4. Fantastic news

    Kind Regards
