The chicks have flown the nest! Join us next season as the parents return to raise a new generation.
Welcome to the Ullman Bursa Law Osprey Cam.
Kirsten Ullman & Brian Bursa erected an Osprey pole & platform in 2010 at their house in Apollo Beach. The same nesting pair has returned each year to raise a new family. Each year 2 eggs were laid and chicks raised, with the exception of 2012 when the chick count was 3. On average, it takes 64 days for the chicks to grow to adulthood and permanently leave the nest to find mates of their own. We have nicknamed them Apollo and Athena. You can tell the difference between them, as the female is slightly larger than the male. We hope that you enjoy watching the parents feed fish to the chicks and how amazingly quick that the little ones grow to the point where it is difficult to distinguish the chicks from the parents.
