Kind of strange. The Chick didn't hang around very long. Have only observed adults there now.

Checked the nest today but, only saw 1 nestling. I don't think the other fledged so, maybe something happened to it. I only got one picture off before the nestling layed down in the nest. The adult flew over me twice check me out. I'll post a pic. It definitely was looking hard at me.

I have not seen any chicks at this nest and activity by the adults leaves me thinking there aren't any. It is a deep nest so, I'll keep watching.

Although I can't see into the nest, it appears that the adults are feeding young on this date.

No young were observed and like the southern nest, this nest was destroyed in a storm.

Although I have no way of seeing into the nest, approx 4/13/14 I observed only one Osprey perched outside the nest the same as in the Southern nest. As this has also continued for about 3 weeks. Like with the Southern nest, I assume that eggs have been laid and incubation has begun.
