12:02 PM One flew into and sat on nest, and second Osprey flew in and landed at adjacent cell tower. Navy jets, that I love, went screaming overhead numerous times. Each time the jet noise subsided, multiple birds species sang - seemingly unaffected by the jets, and determined to belt out their messages! 69°F, sunny and winds E at 12 mph)
