this nest was quite busy. There was one osprey inside the nest (fledgling), another on a sign near-by, one on a street light near-by, and another periodically stopping in the nest to feed the fledgling. It looked to be a female doing the hunting/feeding. The others nearby were male. Also, a few yards away at another platform a couple was hanging out. The platform looked like it may have the beginnings of a nest.

04/05/2014 by morgan
Female was in the nest. She kept bending her head down and moving around. Couldn't tell if she was cleaning up the nest or maybe feeding little ones. No sign of the male while I was there

Today the osprey was back. Looked like it was doing some house keeping in the nest. Couldn't tell whether it was a male or female, could only see its backside as it worked! Glad the nest isn't abandoned though!

02/23/2014 by morgan
No osprey in or around nest but the park was quite busy with people

02/05/2014 by morgan
Male seen a short distance from the nest hunting. Nest was occupied, assuming it to be the female. No fledglings seen or heard.

Male osprey was seen perched on platform watching its surroundings.

01/09/2014 by bbaroudi
No sign of a nest on the platform. A few twigs can be seen, but not enough to form a nest.
