There is one adult present in the nest.There is also a chick visible! It is incredibly small compared to the chicks in nearby nests. It must have hatched recently. After fifteen minutes of observation the other adult osprey flew over from an adjacent light pole.

04/29/2014 by AKP
A female adult osprey is present in the center of the nest. There appears to be movement in the middle of the nest, but it is difficult to make out whether it was a hatchling or just nesting materials when the female readjusts herself.

Both a male and female osprey are present sitting together in the center of the nest. They appear settled and still. The female has a flat back as if incubating.
