female on nest with egg(s) Not able to see into nest. Male spends a lot off time chasing the bald eagles. Very interesting to watch.

This nest is accessible by walking the trail to the nostril, and is in the "eye watch" of the Oyster Cove community residents. It is located directly across Marshy Creek from the townhouses. This nest has not always been successful in the past, but is presently occupied.
