Difficult to see into nest but both male and female in and out with female never out of nest for more than a minute or two. Being fed by male...all appears well..cannot determine if eggs in nest but assume due to behavior...fingers crossed

Pair in and out of nest. Appears they have really taken to this new pole erected last yr just for them when the power company removed their nest form pole. Both look healthy...

First adult, believed male, arrived 03-25. This pair has returned every year for the last six yrs that I am aware. Originally on telephone pole dismantled by power company. At urging of sandy neck personnel and concerned citizens, new osprey pole erected last yr.
