No adults found in area. Nest does not appear to be losing material.

Again no osprey sightings or food droppings. One osprey could be heard briefly chriping in the air, but it was very unlear where the osprey was coming from or going to.

No evidence of osprey adults found. Nest appears to be in same shape as before.

Nest has not changed in size, again no sign of ospreys in the immediate area. Nest may be abandoned due to the death of the prior resident from spring.

11/01/2016 by RachelLEckerd
Nest seems to be fairly large on perch, a good amount of material can be seen sticking over the sides. No adults were seen during the observation time, and there did not appear to be any signs of recent activity.

The first image I uploaded was taken on 2/8/2016. Sadly the second image was taken last night at 9:00pm during the rains in front of the tropical depression Colin. When I returned the carcass was gone. It's possible that she/he was electrocuted. Neighbors had reported seeing three birds up there in the last few weeks. There was no noise or signs of life up in the nest this morning. Very sad.

Nest was in good condition, but on what looks to be live wires. Female was incubating. No sign of male.
