This nest has been a challenge since it is barely a nest. Over the last two months there were 2 ospreys, then a solo osprey, then none for days, and now finally there is a pair with at least 2 chicks. Not sure if these are the same ones as earlier in the spring or perhaps a more experienced pair that has made a home here.

This stand is empty since the last hurricane destroyed any remaining nest materials. The pair is starting from scratch again. Glad to see the couple return!

Currently there are only two osprey periodically visiting the nest. I believe that they are the juveniles but I can't be sure.

It seems that there were three nestlings but only two have survived and are soon ready for flight.

Difficult to monitor eggs laying and hatching but two nestlings are confirmed with the possibility of a third. Will continue to watch.
