A pair of Bald Eagles are in the process of taking over this Osprey nest. They have been bringing nest material to the cell tower for more than a week. See photos that I have posted. The female is just becoming 5 years old. She has dark feathers in her tail. The female Osprey did arrive and on Feb 28 and Mar 1 was seen stooping on the eagles. The Osprey has not been seen for the past 4 days.

It he date of pair arrival is just an estimate, I drive by this site daily and had noticed Osprey in the air near the lake, presumably fishing, due to the time of day I see them. I noticed the nest about three or four weeks ago, but assumed this nest had already been reported. The nest is Huge!
