Nesting Diaries

by Dave R
Inactive April 25, 2013. Appeared inactive all season although some new nesting materials observed in July.

by Dave R
Repairs made to platform in Mar 2012. Osprey observed on platform in May and nesting materials clearly on platform in Aug. But no confirmation of nesting pair in 2012.

DWR. Observed on adult OSPR on platform. It was perched, not sitting but it appeared that there were new nesting materials on the platform. Probably inactive in 2011. Needs repairs.
