This nest was built and installed in the Fall of 2016. When Ospreys arrived in the Spring of 2017, they adopted the nest, and quickly started a new family. The same pair have returned each Spring thereafter. The first year, they only laid one egg, but each year thereafter, they have had three chicks. All chicks have survived and have done well. It has been an incredible learning journey for all those who have watched (and listened) to the Ospreys as they have raised a new family each year.
