Who remembers the gestation period of the Osprey egg? (34 to 42 days)

Who remembers if all 3 of Harriett’s eggs will hatch at once or one at a time days apart? (Approximately 2 days apart)

Who remembers the disadvantage of the 3rd born? Who remembers the chances of a new born Osprey reaching one year of life?  (Depends on the food supply and strength of 3rd born)

Who remembers the perils a new Osprey chick must face?  (“Did you say fly to South America?”)



“Are you ready for this?” Asked Harriet.

“Am I ready! You know I’m ready. The question is, are you ready?”

“Of course I’m ready,” replied Harriett without umbrage. Have I not done this twice before?”

“Yeah, sure, but that was with a singleton and twins. Do you think you can handle triplets?”

Harriet tried to disregard Ozzie’s imprudent remarks.

“You just keep the predators away and keep the fish coming,” she said.

Then she gave him a little ego boost.

“Who is the best fisherman on the East Coast and probably of all North America?” She offered with a twitch of her tail feathers.

Ozzie knew who she was talking about. It was he of course.  And if you don’t believe it, just take a look at some of the upcoming photographs and videos.

About Harriett Raptor

Eight-year-old mother of five, fluent in telepathy, a possessor of genetic memory, a genius and scholar. Harriett holds the equivalent of a PhD in philosophy, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and the Homo sapiens’ concept of the humanities. Her understanding of mathematics and logic are beyond Homo sapiens’ current comprehension. Harriett is a thinker, a wise osprey, especially distinguished for her expertise in the Homo sapiens problem.
