Nesting Diaries

This past week, several times I've seen one adult sitting on the nest, while the other circled in the area. I assume eggs are in the nest, but am not able to peer inside to confirm!

04/06/2020 by Feathers and Fauna
Observed active mating at the nest as I passed on the bridge today!

03/22/2020 by Feathers and Fauna
Pair just spotted on top of bridge today! Saw single adult for the past couple of days flying and occasionally perching on top of bridge.

09/09/2019 by Feathers and Fauna
Saw a lone osprey on the nest today as well as last Thursday 09/05/19. Too bad he/she didn’t have a name tag on since I don’t know if he/she was from this nest or just passing through.

08/28/2019 by Feathers and Fauna
This was the first day I didn't see our friend on the bridge! I haven't seen him/her since. Happy Migration osprey family!

Only one bird remaining at the nest for the past several days.

Confirmed at least one chick today! Saw adult and chick as I passed under their nest today!

Adult no longer sitting on nest, but on the side of nest. Can't see any young inside the nest due to angle.

One adult sitting on nest consistently and second adult seen carrying fish over water.

Pigeons enjoy hanging out near the nest, but confirmed one adult on nest today and other adult on top of bridge looking around.

05/24/2019 by Feathers and Fauna
