Baby Osprey's First Flight

After much wing flapping and hopping about the newest addition to the CBF Family, hatched on July 2, 2018 took her first flight out of the nest on August 28.

The Chesapeake Bay has the most concentrated population of osprey in the world with more than 2,000 nesting pairs. After the females lay eggs (which they incubate for one to two months), the devoted parents stick together and feed and care for the nestlings until they learn to fly. Keep an eye on our osprey cam to watch the family's comings and goings as they prepare to head south for the winter.
