Jack C reports: I think 7633 failed maybe they never laid eggs there. If they did, they failed.

Jack C reports: I have seen no activity at the nest for the last week or so.

Jack C reports: On both dates (6-13 and 6-22) there was not any apparent activity on 7633. There was an osprey in the same tree as the nest for about 5-10 days after I thought the eggs were laid but after that he moved further from the nest and I only saw him intermittently in the vicinity. A lot of activity there today with one delivering a fish and the other standing on the side of the nest so maybe the eggs hatched.

Jack C reports: Two osprey making a lot of noise visited the nest 7633 daily last week. One day they brought a plastic bag for the nest. They took residence 5/28. I'm pretty sure the female laid the eggs 5/29. Male has been dutifully standing by watching nest since then.

Jack C reports: Nest 7633 two osprey circled on 3/19. For the next 5 days one of them landed on the nest and the other one circled and flew around squawking continuously but would not come to the nest. After about twenty minutes of this they both left. On 3/25 they were both on the nest and one of them dropped something onto it maybe a stick, maybe a fish. I didn't see them yesterday or today

NOTE: This nest was not reported until July 2019 so we have limited information other than confirmation that at least 1 chick fledged.

Jack C reports: This is a new nest this year. The one chick has fledged but I don't think he is hunting yet.
