Sometime prior to 5-5-19 the owners of this boat lift placed a small nest box on the corner of their boat lift to replace the nest material the new osprey pair was dropping directly on the corner of the lift. both birds perch at the box as well on a neighbors dock and they have brought lots of nest material in the past week. there is human activity close by so no egg laying and I hope there won't be this season. the nest could be at high water line in a storm and does not look very secure on the lift. this boat lift is right along the path the Eco bay kayak tour travels regularly so there will be much disturbance this summer. The family that owns the boat lift have a young boy that has been caught harassing other osprey nest sites in seasons past, hoping he has grown up a bit and wont bother these osprey. might be a good learning experience for him in any case.
