16. I see only one head but I wonder if

the other one is laying down behind it.
I don't know much about Ospreys but in raptor nest it is not unusual for the oldest chick to kill or toss the others out.
Sometime the parents kill or eject the less strong if they feel there are too many mouths to feed.
This way they have a better chance at fledging a healthy strong baby. I'll keep looking let me know if you see both.
