    Arrow Been a bit ...

    ... slow this spring.

    But today, on the live camera feed, there are a bunch of kestrel chicks in the Sanfoin Bench Kestrel nest, and two new eggs in the Sanfoin Osprey Nest.

    The kestrels have not done well the past two years, with some kind of predation of the chicks two years ago and a die off last year, with no suvivors.

    Last year, the Sanfoin Osprey Nest had a couple eggs, which the parents abandoned early on. But so far they're looking pretty good this spring.

    The couple on the Osprey Nest South have apparently abandoned their nest this spring, with no sightings or activity for several days now.

    On the other hand, the Osprey Nest North couple have produced two healthy chicks each of the past two years, and looks to be on track this year.

    The fish are always right.

    Lightbulb Some things new ...

    ... as in three new osprey chicks on the Osprey Nest North, hatched out since yesterday.

    Things get much more interesting over the next 8-10 weeks for these little guys, assuming they make it. Last year, one of the three chicks on this nest was a runt which lasted only a week or so before it disappeared, for whatever reason.

    Still looks likely that the Sanfoin Bench osprey nest will have some chicks shortly.

    And it can't be much longer before there are bunches of deer fawns, elk calves, and equine foals populating the area.

    In the meantime, about the only things growing are deer, elk and moose antlers in the velvet.

    The fish are always right.
