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.

This nest was originally on a power pole but we were able to get the utility company to erect a platform. The year this nest was moved, the ospreys abandoned it. The next year they started adding to the nest but no other activity was noted. This year there is activity and an adult is sitting on the nest. 5-5-14: One osprey sitting in nest and the mate bringing it food. Can't see any nestlings but I don't think it will be long now. 5-12-14: Observed parent still sitting on nest. Was getting concerned until I saw the mate bringing food. Still no nestlings that I can see. 6-1-14: Observed parent sitting on nest but did not notice any nestlings. It was raining at the time so I was not able to get a clear view. Am starting to get concerned about this nest. 6-21-14: I observed an empty nest. I am not sure if either of these adults were the ones that were electrocuted. I will continue to observe in case they were on the hunt at the time I was checking on them. I thought there would be nestlings by now. 7-26-14: No activity at the nest since the middle of June. I am certain the parents were the two that were electrocuted. We'll have to wait and see if another pair uses the nest next year. 11-04-14: This nest did not produce any babies and the two adults were electrocuted by flying into nearby power lines. 2 -2-2015: Today I noticed a pair of osprey sitting in this nest and flying around the area 3-1-2015: The ospreys are still there and I think they are getting ready to nest. . .

The nest sits atop a telephone pole on a platform alongside an entrance for the Upper Tampa Bay Trail and right next to busy Sheldon Road. Busses come and go beneath the majestic perch from the station heading south toward Waters Road. The couple have been seen together on the nest, or on nearby on light poles across the street or flying over Rocky Creak which runs below the overpass.

This is another very tall Norwegian pine and like the "Alcola" nest, may be fro the pair drive out by the demolition of a nearby Norwegian last year.

First successful nesting for this pair. Located on the Indian River Lagoon in Sebastian, Fl. As everyone in our community knows, Ozzie the first was fatally injured in a fight with an Eagle. Harriet had 3 eggs and all hatched. Sadly only one chick survived. Harriet worked very hard as a single Mom. Thus, Ozzie #2.
