Adults fish in adjacent pond, but do not appear to have a nest where they did last season. This may be due to building a house nearby, storm damage to nest, or eagles in vacinity of pond.

Saw male dive today and fly away with a large 5-6" fish in his talons. Flew to tree top perch to eat it.

1st Observed this nest last summer when we moved into our home in June, 2015. Adult osprey were observed for the rest of the summer. They occupied this nest, often bringing fish to it, so we assumed there were hatchlings. In September we observed 4 osprey, so we think there were 2 hatchlings in 2015 from this nest.
