Several years ago, before The Doctor and I developed our unique form of telepathy, he would leave his office window open so I could use his keyboard.
At the time the female H. sapiens that lives with The Doctor was unaware of our arrangement. Fortunately she is a sound sleeper and never did pick up upon it.
Now, I’m not bragging but, I can hunt and peck, and click and shift, backspace and delete, and click, click, tab, #, punctuate, back click, forward click and Ctrl-Alt- Del with the best of them. I know what you’re thinking. You only have four talons, but I can pic/peck with my beak faster than you can blink your eyes.
Well, as some of you know, The Doctor has a bad knee which is taking him away from his obligatory osprey reporting. To compensate, he has left his office window open; so I will be communicating directly with you.
A few facts:
Age at first breeding: 3-5 years
On average, the period from first mating to egg laying is:
1st Egg 16 days
2nd Egg 19 days
3rd Egg 22 days
Number of eggs: Usually 3
Size of eggs (mm): 62 x 46
Incubation period: 35-42 days
Fledging period: 53 days
I hope to lay my first egg this week. Keep a look out! And thanks for reading.
