Nesting Diaries

One adult sat perched near the nest. The other adult brought a fish to the nest, but, due to the height of the nest, I could not tell whether it ate the fish itself or whether it used to feed chicks.

I did not observe any adults or any activity today, but the height of the nest makes it difficult to discern incubating adults unless they move.

One adult sat in the nest incubating. I did not observe the other adult or any other activity.

One adult sat incubating. The other flew to the nest, perched for several minutes, then flew away again.

One adult was incubating the eggs. At one point, it flew to a perch within 10 feet of the nest, as if taking a break, then flew back to the nest and resumed incubating its eggs after about 30 seconds.

One adult sat incubating the eggs. The other adult flew up to the nest with a fish, ate some, then flew away. The first adult meanwhile readjusted its position then continued to incubate the eggs.

One osprey was laying down in the nest, presumably incubating eggs. It stood up and readjusted its position, then settled back down on the eggs.

No osprey observed during this survey.

The nest is far larger than it was at the last survey. I saw one osprey carry a stick to the nest then rearrange several other sticks before flying away.

No ospreys were present, but the nest appears to have been built back up slightly since it was somewhat collapsed over the winter.
