Ospreys with three chicks - being fed by mom

Three baby chicks being feed in Virginia Beach.
High sun, boat to low to get a good shot. Learned that only the mother feeds
what the dad catches. The mother tears the fish and offers it to the chick.
These chicks are only about 4 weeks old.
Pictures from 4 weeks ago only showed nest building and no chicks.
Must have been eggs in the nest.
