During the breeding season male and female Ospreys have very well defined roles. It’s the male’s job to go off and catch the fish but its the female who actually feeds the chicks. As today’s video shows, though, this is not always the case. We’ve never seen 5R feed the chicks, but this morning, with two fish on the nest, he fed the younger of the two chicks while his mate fed the other. It made for a great family scene!
