Nesting Diaries

Vacant each time I've driven by the last few days.

Vacant since 8/21

08/21/2019 by UD Marine Ops
Two seen in the nest this morning! Nest has been vacant every time I've driven by over the past few weeks. They must have been out training up for hunting and heading south.

Osprey perched on each post this morning. Adult also in nearby tree where often seen.

Nest vacant the three times I checked yesterday and this morning. Young were more mature than other UD nests so may have fledged while I was away. last week.

~0900 - Nest going strong. Two good sized hatchlings with "panting" open beaks. Two well caring adults seen nearby most of the time.

06/25/2019 by UD Marine Ops
Almost positive I saw two hatchlings being feed today ~1700. I will check more often to confirm.

06/22/2019 by UD Marine Ops
Around 1300 today one adult and the large hatchling were active in the nest. Very healthy hatchling.

This nest has one very large young chic. More mature than the two in nest UD-3. Probably only one mouth to feed in the nest. No sign of any other young moving around.

Mom was feeding a young this morning when I drove by. A successful nest thusfar. Again, this is the best built nest of the ones I observe regularly. It will be interesting to see what other differences we see with raising the clutch. This pair seems like confident, skilled veterans.

This nest was very well built last year and is mostly in tact.
