Observer reports: nest # 7147 I have visited 3 times in the past wk. Mom or Dad seems to be tending to the nest but I Have not see any young ones. Nest is pretty high.
observer reports: I checked on it the past 2 days. Both days an adult Osprey was on the nest. Today a second adult was very close by in a tree. I can't tell if there are any babies.
observer reports: My wife and I checked on #7147 yesterday afternoon. We could see movement in the nest, could not tell if it was Mom/Dad or babies.
observer reports: I checked on it this afternoon. I could see either mom or dad in the nest moving around every now and then. Everything looked fine
based on the reports, we are guessing that incubation is underway. May 1st is just a guess.
observer reports: Mom. (Assuming Mom) has been on the nest the 2 or 3 times I have gone past it in the past wk
This is a new nest just found in late April.
