No Osprey were present during this visit. Safe to assume they have headed south for the winter.

The two adults were observed perched on a dead tree about 400 yards from the nest. There was one pretty much full grown chick in the nest busy yelling at some fishermen who floated too close to the nest in their boat. There was also an Osprey seen flying before we could see the nest, not sure if it was one of the adults or the other chick. It was very hot and humid so there wasn't a lot of activity while we were watching.
