There were three observers in our group today.We saw the female and briefly saw one good sized chick. Did not see evidence of any more than one.The female appeared to be concerned about our presence as she had a fish and a nestling to care for.

Adult watching over nest steadily. Very briefly, a few times saw at least one head pop up over the nest. Possibly two.

The male was observed on a branch with a very large fish. Female was in the nest and strongly suspect there are chicks in the nest although the height of the tree and depth of the nest makes it impossible to verify. Many house sparrows nesting in the lower portions of the nest.

The female was observed walking around the nest and carrying a stick to the nest. She flew off briefly and returned. Hatchling (s) are assumed to be in her care now. Photo only captures the wing of the female as she landed back in the nest.

Again observed the male eating a fish on a branch near the nest. Female still low in the nest and couldn't get a photo, however she was making a lot of calling sounds but the male didn't bring the fish to her.

This nest was brought to my attention by an individual who occasionally visits the area and observes and photographs osprey. Today photos were taken of the male with his catch of fish. Both male and female were observed on the nest.
