Sadly - it appears this nest was destroyed - not sure if it was removed by a person or if it was blown down - we did not see any materials on the ground under the nest :-(

3/26/12 We saw one Osprey on a light pole not very far from the nest and a second Osprey a little further away on another light pole

We saw one osprey pick up and carry some sticks to its nest as building material. It had some difficulty flying due to the size of the stick that it was carrying.
