No, these are not First Landing Osprey. Rather thay are Westport, Massachusetts Osprey pictured in 2006---just out of the egg and almost ready to fledge. First Landing Osprey 788-20124 and her mate have hatched at least one chick during the past week. They can seen brooding and tending the chick(s) on the nest, although the height of the nest above my vantage point does allow me to see any chick(s).
The Osprey were seen on and about the nest today. I infer that the chick(s) have therefore survived the NE winds, rain showers and cool temperatures of the past three days.
