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.

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!
