The Chambers Bay Osprey have made the move to a new nest with no
apparent problems, again busy raising three chicks. While I watched, the
female remained on the nest, leaving once to bring in a large stick, and
once to chase off an interloping Osprey, while the male brought in two
fish. She is missing at least one primary from her right wing, and one
feather is bent at right angles which looks odd when she flies.

The new nest is a mixed bag from a photography point of view. It is
higher than the old nest, and there are some ugly sticks that make it
almost impossible to get a good shot of the birds in the nest. On the
upside, having complete access around the nest allows you to get into a
good position when an adult returns to the nest with a fish.
