Another successful season for this nest, but never saw the fledging leave the nest.

04/24/2017 by Jeff-Loz
Did not see mating or egg laying, but bird is definitely in the "nesting" position.

03/17/2017 by Jeff-Loz
Observed first osprey of 2017 season at this nest.

06/26/2016 by Jeff-Loz
No success for second egg-laying for this couple. They are still together at the nest, just enjoying an empty nest !

06/04/2016 by Jeff-Loz
Confirming nest failure as I observed birds copulating again. Hopefully, they will be more successful.

06/01/2016 by Jeff-Loz
Believe there was a nest failure as the female has stopped her "nesting" posture and both birds stand on the nest.

04/29/2016 by Jeff-Loz
Observed mating of pair last week. Female settled into nest on 4/27 and has stayed there since. Have seen occasional transfer of nest duty when mate brings food (fish) for other mate to eat.

04/01/2016 by Jeff-Loz
Pair have definitely settled on this nest, as of 3/26/16. They are bringing nesting material to nest.

1st osprey arrived 10:30 AM 3/17/2016. Then a pair arrived 9:30 AM 3/18/2016. They stayed an hour then flew, possibly to other nests.
