Found three chicks on the nest stretching their wings apparently getting ready to fly. Also one adult.

Found one adult osprey on the nest. Pair was recently displaced from a radio tower adjacent to the marina.

Observed since 2014. In 2015 and 2016 the nest produced 2 chicks each year but all were lost. Mostly in raids by other osprey or falling through a missing plank in the platform.
