Background: This pair and possibly another mated pair have been observed in the vicinity since close to the arrival time of the osprey seen on the platform nest at the marina See Nest#676. However, there has not been a pair at both locations at the same time. Rather, one or a pair have been seen at either location at various times. Today's observations: A pair was seen on the nest (see distant photo) and observed mating. The male took off and flew over the parking lot along the creek line and in the air I saw a mature bald eagle, and two osprey --and the female was still sitting on the nest in the dead tree. At one point the four were near -but keeping their distance-from each other. Not long after I saw an osprey land on the platform and another osprey fly nearby the platform. Still the one in the tree remained on the nest. Unknown: So it is still unknown what the situation is with the platform nest. Could the other two osprey seen be from nest#7057 (which is on Channel Marker 15 at "The Point" in New Quarter Park) -and were just fishing? You may post your observations in the diary update

Discovered by cohort XII Master Naturalist, Robin Culler, on the 5th of May while watching fighting activity in the air with eagles and osprey. Nearby is Queen's Lake Marina nest #676 that I monitor. Earlier in the season, two osprey were struggling to find a place since their nest from last year was no longer there.
