This nest is located at 6055 Lake Washington Rd, Melbourne, FL. It was originally located on a power pole but we obtained permission to move the nest to a platform. It has been active for quite a few years and has been very successful. We did lose an adult a few years back due to injuries we believe she sustained in a rainstorm that had very high winds. By the next nesting season the male had another mate and we again had babies. Presently, I have observed an adult sitting in the nest but have not been able to determine if there are nestlings yet. 5-5-14: Observed two nestlings in the nest. How exciting! I believe they might have been there the first time I reported but I wasn't 100% sure. No doubt about it now! 5-12-14: Both parents were in the nest today with the nestlings. I don't think it will be long before the nestlings are having flying lessons! 6-1-14: Both juveniles were in nest but I didn't see the parents around. Was able to observe one of the juveniles fly from the nest and return in a few minutes. Both look healthy. 6-21-14: Bad news. Around June 16 we found two of our ospreys electrocuted. They had gotten into the power lines. I was not available to get a look at them but it was reported to me that it was the adults. I observed two birds in the nest yesterday but I could not tell if it was the juveniles or not. If they are juveniles, I hope they are old enough now to take care of themselves. They would probably be around 7 to 8 weeks old. 7-26-14: It seems that the two osprey which were electrocuted belonged to nest #4925. The juveniles that belonged to this nest have learned to fly and are off hunting for themselves. The ospreys that belong to this nest have been seen in the area but the nest is not active at this time. 11-04-14: This nest produced two ospreys this season. We have observed a couple of ospreys flying around the area in the past two weeks. 24 Jan 2015: Since the beginning of the year we have spotted a pair of ospreys around this nest. About two weeks ago, one of them began sitting in the nest while the other flies around the area. 2 Feb 2015: We have an osprey sitting in the nest here. Not sure if she is already nesting because I haven't noticed the pair preparing the nest. 3-1-15: It looks like the osprey here is nesting. Saw only one today but will be watching the nest more closely now. 4-13-15: Good news! Today, I observed two nestlings. At first, I thought there was only one as one of the parents was feeding it but by going to the other side of the nest, I saw the other one. Will be keeping a close eye on this nest! 5-31-15: The fledglings are having their flying lessons! Have noticed them away from the nest with the parents keeping close watch over them. 12-30-15: Have noticed two ospreys hanging around nest. 12-31-15: Observed one of the ospreys in the nest. 1-1-16: Both ospreys were sitting in the nest today. 2-14-16: The osprey pair have been sitting on the next continually for the past four weeks. They have also been adding twigs and such. We should have nestlings soon! 5-8-16: Both adults have been observed at nest. They were sharing food and both were observed standing in the nest together. 5-13-16: No ospreys have been observed near this nest at all this week. Do not know what is going on 5-15-16: One osprey sitting in the nest. I'm beginning to think that we will have no chicks. Will continue to observe. 12-31-2016: Noticed a lone osprey sitting in nest. 1-2-2017: There is a pair of osprey at the nest. 1-9-2017: Noticed the ospreys bringing twigs to the nest.
