Arrived at the site and found the female on the nest and the male perched to the left. Could possibly be 2 chicks; but because of distance from observation point, difficult to say with any certainty. Maybe able to confirm down the road with time and age.

Female incubating. During my observation, found a 2nd nest in close proximity and several osprey flying about. I assume it was this nest's male that landed near an adjacent oil holding tank.

New-to-me nest this season, first observed the male and female at the site.
