Today I found the nest for the first time this season. The nest looked large and easily sighted. There was no sign of an osprey in the nest or around the area. The weather was overcast- maybe that has something to do with it.

02/08/2014 by LC
First time finding this nest this season. Was able to spot the nest no problem. No sign of Osprey in this area. Very large nest, looked like it could be deserted. (overcast, colder weather)

01/14/2014 by Hudson
We found this nest much easier than the first time we looked for it. Still haven't seen any osprey in the area so I think it is a safe bet that this nest is abandoned as well. Unfortunately all three of my nests are now vacant.

01/10/2014 by Hudson
It was difficult to see/find the nest at first but after about 5 minutes of searching, we found the nest. The nest is surprisingly small for an osprey nest. Unfortunately we didn't see any.
