I see Osprey on this tower frequently. However, no nesting attempt at this location this year.

No nesting attempt has been made at this location this year. Every now and then I'll see and Osprey perched on this tower.

This nest was completely removed last year by workers on the tower. I have seen an Osprey on this tower, but not a pair. And so far, no nesting material has been brought to the tower.

It looked like they were incubating, then they just disappeared. I occassionally see an Osprey on this tower. But there were no babies.
