Female continues to appear to be incubating the eggs.

The female appears to be sitting on eggs. However, the nest is at a very hard angle and more observation is needed to double check this entry.

Both adults were seen, one on the nest and the other on a branch nearby! Last year their nest failed, so hopefully this will be a better year.

Park staff tells me that they saw the female flying in the area and landing on the nest for a few minutes on Friday, March 14th!

The female is sitting low in the nest with the male close by. I think she has begun incubating but I will continue to monitor over the next few days to double check.

No activity. No birds.

Checked today and they are still bringing in nesting materials, mating frequently, and chasing off a third osprey. But no incubating behaviors at this time.

Butterfly Girl and I went over to the Marina today and watched the new nest for a while. I took some photos and we were fascinated by the constant chatter of the two. Right now they are both just sitting on the edge of the nest and making a lot of noise when eagles or vultures fly over. It’s a beautiful nest for only being three weeks old, so we have high hopes we’ll soon see the female incubating.

Male in nest upon arrival, female arrived and male left, female does not appear low and both were gone when we returned after a half hour.

Female in nest. No male in sight -- did NOT appear to be low and in incubation, but tough angle to see up 40 feet.
