Jack C reports: Nest intact but no osprey present.

07/23/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: In rethinking, they probably was only 1 nestling and it did successfully fledge.

07/19/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: There was one juvenile on a branch of a pine about 15 feet from the 7632 nest tree. It went on a short flight over the pond and returned to the branch. It looked comfortable flying so probably fledged a while ago.

Jack C reports: maybe 7632 has two chicks, but this is unconfirmed.

06/22/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: On 6/22 there was one young osprey standing on the side there may have been more but I could not see any

06/13/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: On 6/13 I could hear what sounded like chicks and observed the mother.

05/31/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: On 5/31 osprey tending chicks on 7632. I can't see how many yet but will check back soon. They may have been born before 5/20 because just as I was leaving an osprey flew off the nest at a low angle. NOTE: posted 5/15 for hatching...but that is a guess based on the observations.

05/20/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: 7632 had two osprey one in the incubation position NOTE: this may mean the incubation date was incorrect. We will keep waiting.

04/27/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: On 7632 one osprey visible in incubation position. Other osprey not sighted.

04/17/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: one osprey was circling and calling above nest 7632 the other bird was not visible.

03/19/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: checked nest 7632 on 3/19 could only see one osprey standing beside the nest making deep pitched whistles almost like singing. The nest is very big and the residents of the house who apparently can see in from the upstairs said the ospreys had been in incubation posture since 3/15

03/06/2020 by CarolC
Jack C reports: two osprey at but not in nest 7632 probably arrived 3/5 since I saw them headed that way together. One was at nest 3/6 the other probably out hunting.

Note: Jack C. spoke with a man who lives by the nest and was told that there were 3 chicks that fledged this year and 2 last year when were were not monitoring this nest.

Reported by Jack C. : This is another nest which also fledged a chick behind 36 South Beach Lane on Sprunt Pond. It has been there for several years.

NOTE: Because this nest was not reported until July 20, 2019, we have no data other than confirmation that there was at least chick that fledged.
