what a delight to see the two fledglings off the nest. One is near by the nest on a tree limb. The other is not seen.

Finally observed what I expected TWO chicks! Good size so probably hatched about near 5/22/19 Both Osprey at the nest. Mate brought a large fish from the bay. Other mate began feeding the two hungry nestlings What a pleasure to sit and observe!

this nest I am told was occupied last year but had to be rebuilt completely this year. The pair has made a sturdy nest on this low light pole. The female is sitting but doubt eggs yet.
