Nesting Diaries

Nest failed. No new nesting material since the previous year, and the material of the last year has fallen over time. There was a male present in a tree nearby, but there is no reason to believe the nest is being refurbished. Light vocalizations can be heard upon leaving the observational area.

No individuals are seen in or around the area. No individuals are seen perched or soaring in the area either. Nest is not maintained and continues to deteriorate.

One individual makes a four burst call from opposing tree and flies off with a fish. Nest is still sliding from its current position. There is no evidence of use or maintenance.

No individuals are present in the area or heard in the area. The nest is beginning to slide off the dead tree, which leads the observer to believe that there are no longer osprey here that are attempting to nest. No declaration will be made of failure until an additional observation is made.

Male flies in calling after about one minute into the observation. He calls loudly for the duration of the observation. Female is seen very close by in a dead tree. She seems to call as well, almost in response. Alternate male flies in and circles around the nest. Male that is observed in the nest calls and beats wings to ward off the invading individual who concedes after two attempts to land. The intruder is heard calling nearby in the woods upon retreat to observer's vehicle.

Unoccupied with no individuals seen in the area. One individual is noted to be making calls, but sounds a distance away.

Unoccupied with no visible individuals in the area. No calls are heard in the vicinity.

Upon first observation no individuals are seen in the area. One individual is heard but not seen in the immediate vicinity. Secondary observation male returns to the nest with large fish and calls extremely loudly, reminding the observer of a Red-tailed hawks call. Nearby, an alternate individual is noted to seem to respond to the loud male. Male leaves the nest upon approach.
