Nest seems to be abandoned. No Ctivity seen for several days. Today when checking, thought perhaps one adult was returning to neat, but it didn't stay in nest landed on tree several yards away. Believe nest to be empty.

nest seems complete and occupied, but it is hard to tell if one is inside the nest. sighted osprey flying nearby, but unsure if they are from the other 2 nests a short way down the road.
