July 18, 2009 Photograph, Week Six, Osprey Chicks--Mom's Here! (Pandion haliaetus), Occoquan Bay NWR, Woodbridge, Virginia, © 2014.
It gets pretty crowded in the nest now that the chicks are nearly fully grown.
This photo shows the distinct differences between an adult and juvenile Osprey:
Red eyes and white-tipped feathers in the juvenile and solid colored feathers and yellow eye in the adult.
