while there is a pair at this nest off and on, I believe they are still moving between both VFW platforms and not settled

one on nest rim of this platform today while at same time one on the new boat lift nest about c 1,000 feet away so i assume 2 different pairs...

pair was building up the nest and perching on a live tree close by but as of this past weekend they may have moved to a nearby boat lift where people have now placed a small nest box.. the boat lift is not very high off the high water line.the osprey are not actually spending much time on the nest just hanging around the various docks near the boat lift...not a great place for them over this coming summer as too many people will be able to get quite close to them, i hope they don't lay eggs at the boat lift.

i believe this pair is now settling in on this nest but uses both VFW platforms

looks like various osprey use these VFW platforms as a dining room, nothing serious happening just random sightings here.

no activity, i believe they moved back to the upper parking lot platform

have been seeing 2 osprey on this platform off and on since 5-14-18. they have been building up the nest, i think its the same pair from the other VFW failed platform.

no osprey seen at this platform this year

As in years past this nesting platform sees little osprey activity. Occasionally an osprey will land and sit for a second but mostly gulls perch here. I think the location is too loud and too much dog and people action.
