There is now a confirmed pair at the nest and actual nest building is well underway. A third party tried to get involved in the afternoon and the breeding pair quickly sent the intruding osprey on their way after an aerial battle.

My birthday gift for 2018. Built during a bombogensis nor'easter in early March 2018 and finally erected Easter Weekend. Had an osprey circling while we were putting it in the ground and within an hour had one land on the nest. Within the next two hours had two more land and hang out for awhile. Never realized we had such prime real estate!
