I'm going to finally call this one as abandoned. The adults have not been at this nest for some time and other ospreys have been using it as a location to land and eat their fish. About middle of July, a flock of crows picked over this nest for most of a day.

This pair of Ospreys arrived very late and built this nest directly on top of a power pole. The nest is actually resting on the power lines which will probably make Dominion power very happy. From the time this pair arrived to when they were incubating eggs was less than a week.
