Female on the nest, either incubating or brooding. After nearly an hour, the male did a fly-pass, and the female began fish chirping. Left without confirmation of chicks having hatched.

Female continues to incubate. Soon after arriving at the site, a rather large not to mention loud train rolled by ... did not faze her in the least. Captured both Nest A and Nest B in one of the pics.

Arrived at sunup to find female incubating and soon after the male arrived and they mated :)

Arrived to find the male perched on an adjacent pole and a few minutes later landed on the nest to greet the incoming female.

04/14/2014 by OspreyEyes
Arrived to find 1 osprey in residence ... believe it may be the male.
