Just noticed there is a third Osprey around the nest. I thought there were just 2 but then a third flew in and forced one out. One of the mates' offspring from last year or a competetor?

The pair returned either yesterday (3/27) or this morning (3/28) They seem to always return at the exact same time. Does this mean they winter together or is it just great timing? As of rigt now they are just perched and seem to be relaxing. Would be interesting to know where they winter?

I see there is no info for this nest so ill update going back to last year. The osprey arrived last year on the morning of March 31st, 2015. These two have been here for years, wondering if its young will return here in the future as they do. They have yet to arrive this year, which is normal so far. I was wondering if they would return earlier with the mild winter we had but not yet, Im hopin theyll be back soon! Maybe they will be right on time. They had 2 chicks last year as well. Wish I knew were these guys wintered over!

My family and I went on a bike ride and were about to walk though a foot traffic only area near the river. As we got off our bikes and began to walk, we started hearing shrieking sounds coming from the sky and that is when my wife noticed a large bird. She was unsure what type it was until I told her it was an osprey. The osprey just began circling above us making sure we didn't approach her nest high above us. It was crazy because she was definitely not happy.
