At the moment, both of the osprey are on the nest though more and more frequently, I only see one.

Watching the babies, actually juveniles, for over a week as they explore further and further from the nest, always returning to nest in the evening. At times they perch in the pine trees and chirp in the mornings.

Chick's head popped up while female was feeding it today. Observed through telescope. Possibly two chicks but only saw one today.

The female is spending most of the time on the eggs while the male delivers fresh fish at least twice a day. No big disturbances. The female looks very calm.

Pole and platform were installed on March 3, 2017. Three days later, a male osprey arrived and starting building the nest. A female arrived on March 10 and they have been occupying the nest almost full time as of March 13. They have been mating on the nest since March 10.
