03/17/2016 by RachelLEckerd
very large nest made up of mainly sticks and spanish moss, pair of ospreys sighted taking turns leaving the nest. Neither flew very far from the nest, and the male was seen bending his head into the nest, possible indication of hatchlings

03/10/2016 by RachelLEckerd
One female remained in nest, while a male flew around the nest carrying food. Possibly breeding behavior? Nest has definitely expanded since last log and is active.

01/20/2016 by ToucanSam
After another fifteen minutes of observation, the status of the nest remains empty. No Osprey were present in the nest or even in the area. This nest is right up against 54th ave. which is a major roadway, this could be the reason why the Osprey choose elsewhere to nest. Despite their resilience to people, bird vs car does not usually end well for the bird, no matter how big they are.

01/10/2016 by ToucanSam
Large nest, made from hearty materials such as large sticks. No manmade objects present in nest. Despite good condition of nest, no birds were seen for the ten minutes spent watching. No presence of Monk Parakeets either.

Today I did not see any ospreys in the nest or on the other side of the parking lot as I usually do. I honestly have no idea whether the birds I have observed in the vicinity belong to the nest or not. I am very confused about this nest.

01/14/2014 by Katherine
Today the nest looked to be deserted again however, we saw a pair in a tree across the parking lot. I don't know if that means that the pair was just taking a trip across the parking lot or if they were different ospreys.
