Photos of this nest
Parents left earlier in August. 2 of the 3 chicks were around for several weeks, now appears to be one left.
Last check fledged probably on Aug. 9. Have not seen much of the parents lately.
2 chicks have now fledged, the first several days before the 2nd. Still waiting for #3.
Chicks are not quite fledging yet but should be soon.
Several confirmed sightings of three chicks! Starting to stretch their wings.
Definitely 2 chicks, possibly 3? The oldest is much bigger than the other(s) (see pic).
Likely there are 2 chicks but hard to get a photo with both of them yet.
No chick sightings yet but dad is watching over the nest from a nearby tree (see photo).
The female was out of incubation position and appeared to be tending to something in the nest, likely the first hatchling.
Thought I had updated this status. Real progress was made over the weekend and there is now an actual nest (at least until the next round of high winds expected this afternoon).
No sign of a nest, any material brought by the birds gets blown away in these crazy winds.
The nesting pair is settling in. But there were 3 other ospreys harassing them this morning!
Saw 2 ospreys on the pole together and just a few wisps of nest material. They have a long way to go!
Several ospreys seen in the area but no sign of nest building yet.
Male has arrived as of 3/22. Still waiting for the female.
