The nest is complete and they are definitely incubating eggs. The male stays close by and is continuing to bring in branches and today a fish.

JUne 6, 2013 observation: this nest failed. No activity at nest. Believe this pair may have started a new nest in the middle of the campground

New nest since March 19. An Osprey pair on this nest for most of 30 minute monitoring period. Observed one bird bring nest material (stick) to the nest. Birds up and off nest after Bald Eagle flew near. The two Osprey chased the eagle away and returned to their nest.
