Robin S reports: Both Osprey are at the nest!

08/01/2020 by CarolC
Note: We cannot confirm what happened to the second nestling observed but it seems that only 1 fledged.

Robin S reports: I have gone several times in the past month and have only seen 1 osprey nestling. I went by today and saw only one and she was doing wing practice. Shouldn’t be too much longer before she fledges.

05/10/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: Finally!! I was able to see 2 osprey nestlings today. The female osprey was feeding fish for dinner. I have to be very far from the nest (several homes away from the nest) to capture the photo since the nestlings are small and way down in the nest.

Robin S reports: Behavior indicates we have chicks… Female was sitting up in the nest and looking down in front of her. Male was on a nearby tree. NOTE: Based on this, we will indicate hatching around the 23rd...but that is just a guess!

04/17/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: I went by today and the female was still sitting down in the nest. Hopefully soon I will have more to observe.

Robin S reports: I went by the nest today and observed one adult in the nest calling out but didn’t see the other adult. The adult appears to still be sitting down in the nest.

04/02/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: I couldn’t see any osprey so the osprey was probably sitting down flat in the nest.

03/15/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: One osprey in the nest. I did see a second adult fly away on nest 7567. NOTE: We are assuming that incubation has started.

03/02/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: One female in the nest today. A neighbor told me on 2/19 that she saw both at the nest.

02/16/2020 by CarolC
Robin S reports: I have gone by several times with no ospreys in sight.

06/29/2019 by CarolC
Robin S reports: I went by and visited the nest today and saw one of the osprey chicks leave the nest while Dad was watching and the other osprey chick was gone. Both fledged. Great news. NOTE: Based on this observation, we are guessing the first one fledged between 6-3 and 6-29. As a guess, we recorded the first as fledging on 6-24.

06/02/2019 by CarolC
Robin S reports: I have been able to confirm 2 chicks so far. Adult Female is between the two chicks. One on the left of adult and the feathers of the second. The male came to the nest and brought a fish while I was there.

Robin S reports: I talked to a couple of neighbors along the way and found out we have a first year nest at 15 Ellis Ct. As you are facing the house it is on the right side yard in the front. I heard nestlings but not sure how many. I saw both adults with one bringing food to the nest.

NOTE: This new nest was found on May 31st so we do not have info on adult arrival etc.
