Two osprey here today. Last checked a month ago and none were near. Today, paddling by on nearby West Neck Creek, one could be seen in the nest. Once we were closest, it started calling out and the second one flew in from nearby. Some commotion in the nest and the second one flew off to a nearby tree.

First trip to this nest this year. Observed at least one osprey in the nest. Became very vocal as I paddled closer. Observed two adult bald eagles circling overhead, probably from the nearby eagle nest (nest code VB1102).
