No bird activity seen today on nest. not observed last week. Unsure if nest failure

all of May I saw minimal nest material but the platform is deep. Two osprey. One sits on nest mostly. Mockingbird keeps diving at the female whenever people activity near nest she calls out.

this nest was empty for a few weeks in March and early April was finally seeing a pair of Osprey at the nest. I saw no activity and sticks on the ground. not sure what is going on

Have seen this pair with both out of the nest more than one or both of them in the nest. Have not seen them mate. They are shy to human activity.
