Following are images of an Osprey couple sharing a fish around 8:24 AM yesterday. I saw the male Osprey fly in with a fish, but by the time I was ready to take pictures, he was already standing on a side of the nest where the female was incubating.

Usually, he would have eaten the head of the fish, leaving the rest to her.

Note headless fish in male’s talon.
She started eating. As usual, female Osprey was larger than the male.
She decided to take the fish with her to eat somewhere else.
After a brief flight, she landed not far from nest, scattering nearby birds.
Male Osprey took over incubating duties.
