I believe this nest has failed. Too bad because there was such excitement over the return of the pair and their eggs. I never really saw them sitting on the eggs every time I viewed the OspreyCam.

Just got back in town, checked the nest cam and saw eggs!

As of March 15, 2012, it looks like just the male is back. He's not doing too much to spruce up the place!
