Both adults are present. The chick is present in the center. The chick is quite large and will probably fledge soon. The nest is calm today.

04/29/2014 by AKP
There is an adult osprey in the center of the nest. The chick was easily visible and about 1/4 the size of its mother.

04/24/2014 by AKP
One adult osprey was seen sitting in the middle of the nest. The osprey flexed its wings and from beneath its chest a chick popped out. The female adjusts herself about every five minutes, with the chick curiously peeping out.

04/17/2014 by AKP
At the beginning of the observation period no osprey were present at the nest. As dusk approached the lights beneath the nest turned on, and only the silhouette of an osprey could be seen landing in the center of the nest.

04/10/2014 by AKP
One female osprey was observed sitting on the edge of the nest. After fifteen minutes the bird took flight.

04/04/2014 by AKP
Only one osprey was observed perched on the edge of the nest for a total of three minutes.

03/18/2014 by AKP
Only the tail feather of an osprey was visible above the nest. Briefly a head popped up, it was definitely attached to the visible tail and not a separate bird. The osprey was in the center of the nest.

03/13/2014 by AKP
Only the females head was visible, she was sitting in the center of the nest. She flexed her wings a few times.

03/06/2014 by AKP
Female osprey present in the nest. One nestling was sighted, possibly two! Unsure if the second was just nesting material.

02/28/2014 by AKP
An adult female was seen laying very low with a flat back in the nest. She appears to be incubating. There was a very loud baseball fundraising event in the baseball field near the nest.

02/20/2014 by AKP
One female osprey was seen in the center of the nest. It was laying low. Something appeared to move in the nest but after close observation it could have just been the wind moving some nesting materials.

02/15/2014 by AKP
No osprey were present during period of observation.

02/07/2014 by AKP
Saw both a male and female in the nest. The male flew away soon after, leaving the female laying low in the middle of the nest. After 25 minutes the male came back and perched in the nearest tree, eating a fish approximately the size of the osprey's abdomen.

01/21/2014 by Dustin CL
One male osprey was observed in the nest looking around, and it eventually flew away to perch on another light pole.

01/15/2014 by Dustin CL
No Osprey observed in nest. Ospreys were nearby, but never perched near the actual nest.

01/09/2014 by Dustin CL
