April 12, 2018 - female is sitting on the nest. Male is sitting on a pole a few yards from the nest. All is well.

Both male and female in vicinity of the nest and at times sitting on the nest. We observed them bringing sticks to the nest. The nest was in pretty good shape this season. There was a third Osprey also in the vicinity of the nest. It was a male - perhaps one of last years offspring returning home?
