This nest was successful in 2019, but the osprey parents rebuilt the nest at the other end of the billboard sign. It will be interesting to see which nest (which end of the sign) they choose this year.

There was one osprey on this nest March 9th. Last year, they had one successful fledgling. There is talk of a business moving to this location and building. Hoping not during the season!!

This is a new nest we saw awhile back and have been watching. We only see one Osprey, but it has been sitting on the very narrow nesting area for several weeks. We didn't know for sure that it would stay, as the nest material keeps falling off and it appears too narrow from the vantage point of the highway.
