Nest present, no osprey nearby

05/04/2017 by MaryK
The female flew up to the nest as I pulled up to watch. She was carrying some twigs but didn't seem to build the nest with them. At least four ospreys were in the nest and the chicks are starting to look like adults.

04/26/2017 by MaryK
There are two chicks in the nest, almost as big as the adults. The adult female was also in nest but her mate was not. The chicks may be big enough to fly soon.

04/19/2017 by MaryK
Only saw one chick and one adult in the nest. A few other Ospreys were seen and heard in the area, but I couldn't determine if one was the mate. The one in the nest was very observant to those who came too close.

04/12/2017 by MaryK
Female was in the nest with some non-parrot birds using the space below. Female was bothered when they flew too close. After a while her mate returned and there was another male flying in the area. Chicks started standing up and looking around towards the end.

04/05/2017 by MaryK
The male and female were both in the nest looking after at least two chicks. The chicks look a week or two old and were very alert.

03/23/2017 by MaryK
The female was eating inside of the nest and her mate was sitting in a nearby tree. Neither moved for the duration of the watch.

03/16/2017 by MaryK
Female was on nearby tree, the male was lying low in the nest. There may be a a squirrel nest build underneath but attached to the osprey nest; there were three squirrels present and were disappearing into parts of the nest.

03/08/2017 by MaryK
2 were in the nest, looked like they were working on something inside. Female flew off to a branch but soon flew back. I think the male was eating something in the nest.

03/01/2017 by MaryK
2 ospreys were circling in the area; I do not believe any were inside the nest. There were also some hawks and a big vulture nearby. They didn't interact much, but they flew fairly close to the nest.

02/23/2017 by MaryK
Two in the nest, VERY vocal. After a few minutes the male left to eat on a nearby tree, the female returned to sitting low in the nest.

02/15/2017 by MaryK
Nest itself seems healthy. When I arrived there were no ospreys in the area, but both returned after several minutes. Male stayed with the nest before the female flew off.

02/08/2017 by MaryK

I can't tell if anyone has updated this est but it's alive and kicking with one very active chick.

04/21/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Female was seen nearby the nest in a tree. No sighting of the male, and nest remains large and stable. No signs or hatchlings.

04/14/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Male was seen in the nest, while the female was sighting flying overhead, did not land in sight of nest.

04/07/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
No ospreys sighted in or around the nest during observation time. Part of a dead fish was present somewhat near the nest, evidence of continued occupation.

03/31/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Male was spotted perched at a nearby tree, no sighting of the female. Nest remains large.

03/24/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Nest has been added to, seems slightly larger with more sticks sticking out. The pair could be seen perched in the nest, the male visibly preening himself. Possible incubation behavior?

03/17/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Large nest, one small female spotted at a nearby tree before she flew off and returned to the same spot. She chirped twice, but there was no response.

03/10/2016 by Mardy(Gloria)Eckerd
Female was not sighted, but male was seen either perched or circling the nest. He wasn't staying in the nest, but would not go any further than across the field.

02/16/2016 by ToucanSam
Nest is still occupied by the same pair. The large female was alone in the nest, however every 10 minutes she would leave the nest, fly a circle, and return to the nest. Like clockwork. When she sits in the nest, she is not visible at all from below, it was only when she flew that I knew of her presence. This could indicate that she is incubating being that her trips out of the nest were incredibly short, and very few and far between.

01/20/2016 by ToucanSam
Nest is definitely inhabited by a pair. Both were observed coming in and out of the nest. The male occasionally brought nesting material despite how large the nest is.

01/10/2016 by ToucanSam
Large nest, well built. Male and female both present nearby nest. Clearly residents of the nest, the female flew in and out of the nest while the male sat nearby feeding on an unidentifiable object. No sign of incubation, however potential is there.

Female in nest. Possibility of chicks that we might have missed. Nest is very deep so it is hard to determine if there are chicks present or not

Still no sign of re-building of this nest

09/15/2014 by Amy D.

The tree was cut down

01/21/2014 by Amy D.
Again the birds were not in the nest but the male and female were both perched. I feel that they were observing the golfers that were golfing off to the side of the nest. It seemed like they were on the look out so nothing bothers the nest. But they were still not doing any mating things.

01/15/2014 by Amy D.
There were no birds in the actual nests but their was a perched female osprey on the tree to the right of the nest. She looked like she was just checking out the nest to see if she wants to nest there.

01/09/2014 by Amy D.
There was a male and female perched two trees over from nest.

08/01/2013 by Beth
Adults arrived January 2013. Incubation began during February 2013. Pair last seen at nest February 2013.
