Osprey Egg #1 Laid on the Savannah Cam
Early in the morning on March 27, the Osprey pair that's been inhabiting the Savannah nest laid their first egg! It may be hard to see when you're tuned in, but the lone egg is nested deep in the substrate of the nest bowl. In this clip, we get a definitive peek at the egg when the male rolls it after delivering a headless fish to the female. Ospreys most commonly lay 3 egg clutches, although numbers can range anywhere between 1-4 eggs. Eggs are laid every 2-3 days until the clutch is complete, with eggs most often laid early in the mornings. Keep watch to see when/if the next egg comes!
