Platform and nest was destroyed during Nor'Easter this past winter. Support pole was snapped in half!! Local resident indicates that numerous osprey had gathered at the platform remnants this Spring, then tried to build nest on top of Dockside gazebo, but not successfully.

No activity at this nest so far; strange because it was active last year.

Observed one chick in nest with mother attending. There may have been another chick in nest, but could not confirm; will make additional observations soon. Mate was close-by on adjacent platform.

One bird sitting at nest. Unsure if nest failed.
