2:00p.m. Because of the rain, the light is not great. I have not observed this pair for almost 4 weeks. Today both adults were sitting tall on the side of the nest closest to me. One (the female I believe) was eating the entire time. The mate sat still beside her. In the background I could see movement of more than one eyas, but the parents blocked the view! I will have to return soon and try to catch meal time to see if I can get an accurate count of chicks.

2:30 p.m. I noticed that no one was "following" this nest so I decided to see if I could locate it and determine the status. I met a few walkers from the neighborhood who told me this nest always has "a couple" chicks. Apparently they don't know about Osprey Watch. The male was perched on the tower near the female, who was sitting on the nest. I assume she is probably incubating eggs. I will try to check again to see if there are hatchlings.
