Photos of this nest
Quick check on the nest today. I see one bird circling very high above the nest area. Do not see a second bird on the nest, nestlings or adult interaction with the nest. Difficult to get a good look inside the nest from available vantage points on school property.
Do not see a bird on the nest today though it is possible it is sitting too low to see from the distance observed. One osprey observed circling above nest.
Female sitting low in nest; observed male carry in a fish to her, also circling overhead, calling.
Female observed sitting low in nest.
Determined nest location for this year - Partially constructed nest on top of light fixture. Bird observed carrying nesting material/nest building still in progress.
Observed two birds perched/flying in the area. Was not aware of nest location/did not observe nest building on this date.
