LOLO - Dunrovin Ranch's resident osprey, Ozzie and Harriet, are welcoming a second chick to their nest high above Lolo.
The second of three eggs broke open at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, just as its slightly older sibling was being fed breakfast.
The first osprey chick was born earlier this week and now hundreds of people from around the world are watching the spectacle unfold live on the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology webcam.
This week's births are good news for biologists and those who enjoy watching the Dunrovin osprey. Last year, Harriet had laid three eggs but they turned out to be inert and no chicks hatched.
The nest has been equipped with a new high-resolution camera that shows incredible detail of the new family.
