03/02/2014 by morgan
I think she may be incubating! There was definitely an osprey sitting in the nest. Saw no sign of the male though

02/23/2014 by morgan
Nest was occupied with an osprey couldn't see whether it was the male or female

02/05/2014 by morgan
There was a male osprey perched on top of the light pole across the field. Though I couldn't see very well whether the nest was occupied I'm pretty sure I could hear a response coming from the nest each time the male osprey spoke.

01/21/2014 by Caroline
Unfortunately there were no ospreys at this nest. This was disappointing because the last week, we thought that the osprey was incubating.

01/15/2014 by Caroline
This week the nest in coquina park was quite eventful. The osprey pair switches to my nest! I saw one osprey, probaby the male bringing branches and spanish moss back to the nest where the other osprey was perched waiting. I do not know which osprey started building the nest but there wings helped them put the nest together.

01/15/2014 by Caroline
The elementary light pole one on the soccer field had the osprey sitting in it, potentially incubating. There was just one osprey located in the nest, but I do not remember if I saw another osprey nearby on another pole. This nest has not changed much.

01/10/2014 by Caroline
The elementary school one had a pair in it and looked like one of the ospreys was incubating, still not sure though because it was so high up it was hard to get an accurate reading,

01/10/2014 by Caroline
The one in Coquina Keys Park was not occupied but the one next to it was. The nest was significantly bigger than the other one but for some reason that nest was not occupied.

08/01/2013 by Beth
Adults arrived January 2013. Incubation began during February 2013. Chicks first seen in nest 3/15/2013. Pair last seen at nest June 2013.
