Nesting Diaries

Jim H reports: Fledglings are testing their wings! The two young birds are now flying. Over the last week to 10 days they have been very active on the nest - flapping wings and standing on the edge. Yesterday we observed one as it flew back to their tree before dropping into the nest. Both youngsters were back in the nest by the end of the day. They are quite fully fledged now and are close to the same size as the parents.

Jim H reports: Parents are actively caring for the nest. Two fledglings are now visible above the nest. Have attached a couple of pictures. The chicks are well along and probably not too far away from trying their wings!

Jim H reports: checked the nest today and both male and female were on the nest and busy feeding chicks. One head visible but there have to be at least two and maybe three chicks.

05/30/2019 by CarolC
Jim H reports: Both male and female have been near the next. The female has been in the next most days. She has been moving to the edge of the nest. Too high up to see if there are fledglings but will keep looking for some heads!

Steve J and Jim H found this nest on May 6, 2019. It appears that osprey have rebuilt the nest after it was reported to have disappeared in 2014.

Steve J reports: You can see an Osprey above the nest. At one angle I could see the top of an adult Osprey in the nest. NOTE: Based on the observation of an adult in the nest, we will make the assumption that incubation is underway. While we listed incubation as of 5/6/19. we can not determine the exact date because this nest was just reported today.
