Nest is small still, but looks a little more built up from last time. No ospreys near it, can only hear a few somewhere.

02/11/2017 by LarkH
Pair seen standing on sticks that they clearly have been working on making into a nest. Nest is uncompleted, but bigger than before. The female's brown necklace isn't incredibly distinct.

It is very clear this nest has been abandoned, at this point the nest is shrinking week by week.

03/31/2016 by RachelLEckerd
Due to the activity of the very closely nest, this nest is most likely abandoned. It has become noticeably smaller without upkeep due to its unstable location.

Nest was again empty, some debris can be seen falling from it. No ospreys spotted.

03/17/2016 by RachelLEckerd
