Linda reports: I visited nest #7923 yesterday. I only observed one Osprey of the pair that is usually there, and nothing really going on. No evidence of any Chicks. As you know it is difficult to get decent pictures, but I have attached one for your review.

Linda reports: I went by Nest #7293 today around 1 PM. Both Osprey were in the nest. One around the rim ( I think the male) and one in the nest keeping low (I think the female). My hope is that she is sitting on eggs. It looked as though they were communicating or feeding although I couldn’t see any kind of food. The pictures attached are not great, but they do show the 2 in the nest. The nest is far from my vantage point so this is the best I could get even set up on a tripod. I also observed them with binoculars, but those observations are the same as the images I have attached.

Linda reports: I went by Nest #7923 this morning at about 10 am to 10:30 am. I definitely observed 2 Osprey, should be male and female. I think they are sitting on eggs, one (probably the male) venturing off for a little bit and them coming back.

Observer Linda reports: I went by Osprey nest #7923 this morning about 9 am. There was no activity. I couldn’t tell if anyone was deep down in the nest as it is a long one. Stayed for a while and watched with binoculars, but unfortunately nothing.

Tish S found a spot from which this inaccessible nest can be viewed through binoculars and photographed with a long lens.

This nest was only found because it was pointed out to the person monitoring another nest in this area in early July. The nest is constructed between the poles of a tower that we observed to be active. (when viewed with binocs there were osprey in the nest and one flying in with a fish). This nest was located well behind the PSD building, beyond their two ponds. It seems to be inaccessible for someone to monitor as it is in the middle of a heavily wooded area with no apparent public access road. Although the observer report indicates there are chicks in the nest, we are unable to provide data on the nest and are assuming at least one chick.
