The nest is still intact with attentive pair of osprey noted.
Checked on nest #7065. The pair is still attending the nest. The tide is still up, but the osprey nest looks alive and well.
Last night we had a horrid storm. I thought for sure the nest would have been washed away. But no, the nest is still there with both attentive parents.
Today I observed the nest at Fort Clifton on the Appomattox river intact and mama bird sitting in the nest. The tide was high, but did not cover the nest. No picture taken today. Will take my camera tomorrow.
Today the tide was out again,the nest appears larger to me. Both birds still in attendance.
Raining today, the tide is up. The tree that is laying in the Appomattox is covered except for the nest. Both birds are still in attendance.
This evening I saw both birds on the nest. So exciting!
I have ealed down the trail to see them each day. The pair is still in attendance. Do't know if the egg has been laid yet.
Six days ago the pair arrived and started building their nest on this tree laying on a sandbar in the middle of the appomattox river.
