    The eggs fell through the nest last week during a storm, so Mom and Dad are going to remain childless for a while. Saw this on WRUF-TV news this morning.

    Are they still a couple? I only see one up there. That'd be sad.

    There is still a couple up there, but he spends a lot of time fishing, since fish is the only thing they eat.

    Camera should be mounted so we can see most of the field with the nest in the view. What a great way to view the game from if you can't make it. Make this the GatorVision view for an inning or two.

    They need to make plans for the nest or nests in the new stadium design

    While they eat fish, they don't try and steal your fish like pelicans.

    Chap, what do you have against ospreys? Pigeons? Sure. Seagulls? Sure. Ospreys? They are hawks and quite pretty in my opinion. They don't bother anyone. A random fish carcass falls on the Mac outfield every now and then but hardly a big deal. The more the merrier in my view.

    I agree with gtj31. Ospreys are beautiful works of nature.

    The comment about the occasional fish carcass caused me to wonder what the ruling is should a random one conveniently be dropped on a fielder about to catch a fly ball. Which then led me to have semi-evil thoughts about how hard it would be to create a drone that looked enough like an osprey.

    They need to flip the camera ...

    Oh, wait.

    This isn't Nothing But Net with the constant pleas to have the cameras show the Rowdies all game.

    Osprey update- One of the three eggs has hatched and Mom was feeding baby bird this morning. Mouth to mouth fish for breakfast this morning while Dad watched.
