Nest Location Description:
This nest is 1 of 3 lined up along a stretch of roadway … each roughly a hundred yards apart. As it is located next to a set of railway tracks, shows another example of the high tolerance level that osprey exhibit.

Photos of this nest
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.
Arrived to find 1 osprey in residence ... believe it may be the male.
In 2013 two chicks fledged.
