January 28, 2024 cont'd
I think this is his mate - but he's a rough suitor!
She came to nest today - Jack came by with a fish and she had to duck!
Then she followed him.

PEACH
January 31, 2024 -  LO5
The lovely blond Peach came this morning about 10 am.
They spent about half hour together in the nest.

Jack's been gathering a LOT of soft bedding today, and a long branch.

Compare Peach aka LO5 to Ruby

Feb. 3, 2024
A female came by but we are unsure its LO5.

There is another nest nearby with a bird they think is LO5 - who already has a mate.

Feb. 4, 2024
Early morning a female landed, Jack landed after her.  No aggression.
Intruder chased both off.

That Feb 4 wonky wing feather is LO6 - Jacks new mate.

LO6 has officialy been named = Jill.

Jack n Jill fly in at dawn, commence with the romancing. First of course, Jack does his thing with his high skydancing

Jill's spots / necklace is so pale they're hard to see. This 'blond' is a subspecies of the osprey in Florid.

WOW!  LIVE FISH!
Feb. 17, 2024
Jack brings  a LIVE fish that flops around the nest!
https://youtu.be/A5QKVIzm8Dw

The pair disappeared around noon for the rest of the day.

When an osprey sailed over the nest, they both came - but left right away.

They likely roosting in the mangrove just behind nest, as we can hear them.

A juvie ibis perched for 10 minutes, eyeing the nest.
What a treat!
