This nest is coming along nicely. Doesn't seem to have to endure as must harassment as some of my other nest. It is also very high up. We have 3 chicks in this nest and the sizrs are great. Guessing about 8 inches tall. Lots of wing fluttering already. I see the male out hunting often.

This is the largest male of my Osprey group so far. He is a real beauty. Helped with the nest building and both the male and female took flight one after the other on 4-5 min. intervals several times. Mostly returning with sticks. 7:30am Beautiful weather, mild winds.
