Today we saw both adults and one visible older nestling. There was a Bald Eagle circling high over the nest for a while with the female hiding the nestling while the male made a lot of noise, circling over the nest and under the eagle.

Female perched on edge of nest preening and reaching inside multiple times as if tending something inside, also getting in and out of nest. Unable to see any activity inside nest due to available vantage points.

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.
