Have not seen any chicks but the adults are still around nest. It's very hard to see into the nest

The owls left the tree somewhere around the first of April. The last know sighting of the owl chick was March 29th at which time it was reported out of the nest and sitting in the tree with adult. The Ospreys returned to the nest shortly after this. First reported sighting of both parents on nest was April 7th.

Today I was able to observe what appears to be the mother feeding hatchlings. Nest is not visible enough to confirm number.

I have gone by the nest severa time in the last few days and could not see any activity on or around the nest. It is a very large nest and it could be the female is down in the nest.

The pair has been at the nest together but one has not been observed sitting on the nest consistantly

03/29/2018 by Peglucas
Both birds have been seen interacting in the tree close to the nest but have not been observed in the nest or trying to rebuild the nest

This nest was first observed last year. It was an active nest late in the season but was partially destroyed by hurricane Irma. The female was seen in the tree by the old nest for about a week before the male was seen for the first time 03/23/18. They have been seen together in the tree but not on the nest itself.
