This pair seemed to have abandoned the nest about 3-5 weeks after settling up this spring. Not sure what put them off since they did not appear to leave the area for month. First time they have NOT had a successful fledge in five or six years. Oh well, maybe next time.

Have not seen the young ospreys in a week. I think they are gone. I'll miss them but not the mess on the dock!

Correction: the two chicks still appear to be in the area. Only see them in the morning and evening.

Have not had a definite sighting in more than a week. Difficult to tell which ospreys are still in the area.
