The nest is occupied by a pair of ospreys. I *think* this is the nest that used to belong to the osprey, "Ron Harper" from ospreytrax. But Ron is a very confused bird. Last year he was too late and a pair occupied his nest. This year, he's lost in the Yucatan, hanging out a fish farm. So maybe last year's pair are re-occupying?
