Nest Location Description: This nest and nest platform has been here for ten years or so, as of 2012.

Ospreys have successfully raised babies here at least most years since the platform was built.

Nesting Diaries

Yesterday both ospreys were sitting on a new empty nest platform 100 yards east of the existing nest.

Osprey had returned to the area by 3/1/12, but 3/4/12 was the first day they were seen on the nest. The pair was observed on the nest that day together, and again on 3/6/12. They have been flying to and from the nest, but serious nest-building activity has not yet been observed this year.
