The nest is occupied by one osprey I could not identify sex as only head is visible. I observed for half hour (7pm) but did not see another. The nest appeared unoccupied last week.

This is my first observation of ospreys. I observed this nest from 6am to 7am from about 50 yards away. It appears there are three fledglings. One is flying and landing awkwardly on nearby poles with many missed approaches. The second fledgling is flapping and hopping on the nest, the third one just sitting and calling for food. An adult perched nearby eating a fish, then circled the nest with the fish but did not land, maybe it was disturbed by my presence.

This nest appears to be on the same pole as 2016. Upon approach, there was a pair of birds perched upon the nest. As I got closer to the nest, one bird flushed and flew toward the creek. It circled for a while, then returned back to the nest. It did not have a catch, so it can be assumed that there were no fledglings yet. The nest is so high on the pole, it's almost impossible to see if there were any eggs in the nest.

One adult on nest. Another adult flying back and forth from creek to and around nest. This nest is on top of a tall utility pole in the middle of a soccer field. Cannot see how many eggs/fledglings, as the pole is ~40' tall. This nest was also occupied last year, but I forgot to enter data.
