It was hard to get a good look at the nest because it was so high up and the walls of the nest were built so high. One osprey definitely present, and it looked like there might have been another inside of the nest. I believe I saw the head of the other inside of the nest.

One osprey in the nest and one flying near by and looked like it belong to the nest. The nest looked the same in size.
