Nesting Diaries

Bob C reports seeing an osprey sitting in the nest. It probably was the fledgling who returned to the nest for a "visit".

07/04/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reports he believes the chick fledged. When golfing, he has not seen them around the nest for a couple weeks. Our guess is that fledging occurred by July 4

06/13/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: I must be viewing this nest when they are out hunting. Did not see one bird today. However, a man that lives on Cadogan Street says that he has seen the ospreys there with fish.

06/02/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reported: Feeding behavior seen

05/22/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reports: While golfing, I saw an adult at the nest and what appeared to be feeding motion. NOTE: Based on this and the assumption of when incubation started, we are assuming that hatching took place. The date of May 10 is our based guess.

05/07/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: Checked on my nest this morning and there is activity. The male was just flying away after I got there. Female on nest: got the tail feathers in this picture. A friendly gentleman who lives in that area reported there was a third osprey in that area until about a week ago. Maybe a juvenile that returned to the nest area?

05/06/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reports: No activity on 5/5 or 5/6.

04/30/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: My last check a few weeks ago there was an osprey on the nest. I checked this morning and that nest sure is tiny and no activity.

04/02/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: Nest #7229 I walked over to Cadogan Court today but did not see the ospreys. The man who lives in the closest house to the nest said that the ospreys are in the nest. NOTE: Based on this report and the 3-29 observation, we assume incubation is underway. It is simply a guess on the date though.

03/25/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reports: osprey in the nest

03/11/2020 by CarolC
Bob C reports: Osprey at the nest, possibly a second one in the nest

03/08/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: I am happy to report that despite such a small, jumbled nest, there is an osprey in the nest.I saw it fly into the nest today & it did not leave in the time that I was there; eggs perhaps?

02/16/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: Nest is still the same size (small & rough looking.) No osprey activity.

02/05/2020 by CarolC
While golfing, Bob C. reported seeing 1 osprey at the nest.

02/02/2020 by CarolC
Diane L reports: No activity; Looks like part of nest gone.

07/19/2019 by CarolC
Bob C observed that the osprey were flying around the nest. Probably 1 adult and 2 youngsters.

07/05/2019 by CarolC
Diane L reports: I have swung by nest #7229 about 3 times in the past month & saw one maybe two chicks. Yesterday, no activity: so I would say they have empty nest!

06/14/2019 by CarolC
Diane L reports: I managed to dodge the storms & get over to Osprey Nest #7229 yesterday afternoon. HOT I was there about one hour. Noted just this one osprey in the nest & occasionally it would flap its wings like it was testing them out. Definitely not as large as an adult. I did not see the adults.

05/31/2019 by CarolC
Observer Diane L reports: Saw adult osprey & one, maybe two young osprey in the nest. I spoke with the folks that live in the closest house to the nest. They said there's two young osprey. Exciting!

05/31/2019 by CarolC
observer Bob C reports: 5/17: Osprey around nest and heard chicks.

04/24/2019 by CarolC
Diane L reports: I did not observe any babies, but the osprey was quite attentive in that nest. It kept moving it's head up & down & looked like it was tossing some food around....maybe feeding chicks?? NOTE: Based on this description, we are assuming that the clutch hatched. Our guess is 4/20.

04/13/2019 by CarolC
observer Diane L reports: I spent about 40 minutes at the nest site in the late morning. Saw both adults: male osprey flying mom on the nest. Met up with the nice man, Dwayne, who lives on the golf course who took me out to the green & saw a fabulous view of the nest. BUT still could not see any babies. Dwayne says he & his wife have seen the babies lifting their heads from the nest. Unfortunately, not when I am around.

04/04/2019 by CarolC
observer Diane L reports: Swung by today noted mom osprey on the nest & appears to be chicks by the sound....did not observe. Dad osprey flew in with a big fish, but did not share. He took it to a nearby pine tree & ate it himself.

No one knew about or reported this nest until a golfer told me about it on June 25th. On June 26 the first observation was made...and there are two large chicks in the nest who look like they will fledge very soon. Because of the late date we became aware of the nest, we have no idea when they arrived, started incubation, or hatched. The images posted are of the two juveniles.
