This nest is no longer there. The tree was taken down.

Steve J reports: I have checked on the past 3 late afternoons. Previously we were pretty confident we had 2 fledglings. 1 evening I did not see any activity. 1 evening I saw an Osprey standing on the side of the nest. Inside the nest I could see the head of another Osprey. Last evening I could only see the head of an Osprey in the next. NOTE: This probably means that all is well with the nest and the behavior is what is expected. Both fledged but still returning to the nest for several weeks. We will close out this nest for the season as it successfully fledged 2 young.

Steve J reports: I just went by to check on the nest.......2 Osprey in the nest with 2 other Osprey in the branches above the nest. That confirms 2 fledgings.

07/16/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have been watching the nest for the last several days/wk. I am pretty confident there are 2 Fledglings. NOTE: Based on this, we are indicating 2 fledglings instead of 1.

07/10/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: Once I saw 3 Osprey on a branch above the nest. Once or twice I could see 1 Osprey in the nest. Other times nobody was in the nest. NOTE: Based on this report, we are noting at least 1 fledgling. Although we cannot confirm the date of hatching, if the incubation date was in the ball park, the nest would have hatched in May. Fledging would seem to be right on target.

Steve J reports: #7531 3 of the last 4 days an Osprey has been sitting/standing (I would lean towards sitting). I did not see any feeding behavior. on the side of the nest. A 4th time both Osprey were on 2 limbs above the nest.

05/28/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have visited the nest several times recently. The mom ([ guess)is on the nest......seems to be sitting higher on the nest, is more visible.

04/28/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: Osprey on nest.

04/20/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: 7531......I could see the top of the head of mom tucked into the nest NOTE: Based on this, we will guess that incubation has started.

04/11/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have checked on 3 times in the past wk and am unable to see an Osprey in the nest. The first 2 times I saw no activity. The last time I saw the 2 Ospreys in the branches above the nest.

03/28/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: #7531 An Osprey has been visible standing on a tree lime above the nest. But I have been unable to see an Osprey in the next the past 3 times I have looked. It is possible she is there but cannot be seen?

03/18/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: nest 7531- In general one Osprey on nest the other in the tree. Yesterday when I checked both were standing on the tree limb above

02/29/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have been concerned about nest #7531. It looks a bit shabby. That being said yesterday 1 Osprey was on the nest and another on a branch above the nest.

02/09/2020 by CarolC
Steve J reports: 7531.........the nest looks pretty unkept. I did not see any activity yesterday. Today, no activity in the immediate area but not far away 2 Osprey were circling.

08/03/2019 by CarolC
Steve J reports: On 2 occasions I have seen what I think is the fledging either on the side of the nest or in the tree above it.

06/23/2019 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have been watching the nest the past few days. I am confident there is 1 baby (at least). I will continue to watch.

06/09/2019 by CarolC
Steve J reports: I have been watching nest #7442 and 7531. Actually the same report for both. The parents seem to be very attentive......standing on the side of the nests and or in the tree above/around the nest. I can see a small head peeping above in both nests. NOTE: We will assume there is at least 1 chick in this nest and will alter it if another is spotted. Again, because this nest was found so late, we can not provide reliable data on when the pair returned, egg laying etc. We will list hatching as June 1st...since that would make the chick at least a week old and more likely to be visible in the nest.

05/20/2019 by CarolC
Steve J reports: One Osprey in tree above the nest. I could see a bit of movement in the nest...looked like adult Osprey. NOTE: Incubation appears to be happening, but we do not know when it began.

05/06/2019 by CarolC
This is a new nest spotted by Steve J on 5-6-19. Because it was spotted later, we can not document the arrival date of the pair etc.
