Pat R reports: Have stopped monitoring nest #4667 which looked to be active for a while, but never saw the babies if there were any.

07/20/2019 by CarolC
Pat R reports: Yesterday and today and saw no activity at or near the nest. I think whatever was in those nests (lots of past activity with the adult birds, but no baby sightings) has moved on out. We believe that this nest was not productive this year.

Pat R reports: Nest 4667 Hover Park on Mon. 6-24 and today 6- 28. Both times unfortunately did not see anything going on in the nest. Saw several ospreys flying high in the background, but not too close to the nest.

06/15/2019 by CarolC
Pat R reports: Observed Nest 4667, Hover Park, Saturday, June15 for about 20 minutes around 2:30. Just saw one adult sitting on the nest. At first it appeared she could be feeding or attending to something below her in the nest, but then she just sat looking around. No other adult sighted.

Pat R reports: Observed my #4667 Hover Park nest today for about 20 minutes. Adult still sitting on nest but at a higher level than previously. It did spread its wings one time but the rest of the time it just looked around. Saw nothing else.

05/21/2019 by CarolC
Pat R reports: Watched Osprey Nest 4667 Hover Park for about 20 minutes today. Saw one adult only sitting on the nest.

05/11/2019 by CarolC
Pat R reports:Watched Osprey Nest #4667 Hover Park for about 20 minutes today and still saw only one adult head sticking up from the nest and constantly looking around.

05/02/2019 by CarolC
Pat R. reports: As of 11:00 this morning I saw only one adult sitting on the nest pecking around the inside. Occasionally it would look around as to try to spot the mate bringing supplies. After 15 minutes no dice and I had to leave. Hope to see baby ospreys soon. NOTE: we are guessing that incubation started sometime recently.

04/17/2019 by CarolC
Pat R reports: Hover Park, yesterday and saw both ospreys on the cross beam that holds the nest. Didn’t see anything happening in the nest yet except parents repairing some parts.

03/27/2019 by CarolC
Obersver Pat R. reports: I have Lovebirds! Today, finally, I saw two adult ospreys land on the nest and mess around for about a minute. Then one left and the other stayed. I’m so thrilled. I think they’re ready to make a home at nest #4667, Hoover Park.

all 2018 observations by Pat R.

05/23/2018 by CarolC
observer Pat R. reports: My nest behind the First Pres.Church parking lot on the beam had two heads sticking up with an adult flying away – so I have to assume that they are babies. I only saw two heads so I’ll keep an eye out to see if any more show up in the future.

05/06/2018 by CarolC
the incubation date of 5/1 is simply a guess.
