Nesting Diaries

Parents left earlier in August. 2 of the 3 chicks were around for several weeks, now appears to be one left.

08/12/2020 by lost_bird
Last check fledged probably on Aug. 9. Have not seen much of the parents lately.

08/09/2020 by lost_bird
2 chicks have now fledged, the first several days before the 2nd. Still waiting for #3.

08/01/2020 by lost_bird
Chicks are not quite fledging yet but should be soon.

07/19/2020 by lost_bird
Several confirmed sightings of three chicks! Starting to stretch their wings.

07/13/2020 by lost_bird
Definitely 2 chicks, possibly 3? The oldest is much bigger than the other(s) (see pic).

07/01/2020 by lost_bird
Likely there are 2 chicks but hard to get a photo with both of them yet.

06/14/2020 by lost_bird
No chick sightings yet but dad is watching over the nest from a nearby tree (see photo).

06/07/2020 by lost_bird
The female was out of incubation position and appeared to be tending to something in the nest, likely the first hatchling.

04/21/2020 by lost_bird
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).

04/12/2020 by lost_bird
No sign of a nest, any material brought by the birds gets blown away in these crazy winds.

04/09/2020 by lost_bird
The nesting pair is settling in. But there were 3 other ospreys harassing them this morning!

04/08/2020 by lost_bird
Saw 2 ospreys on the pole together and just a few wisps of nest material. They have a long way to go!

04/06/2020 by lost_bird
Several ospreys seen in the area but no sign of nest building yet.

03/22/2020 by lost_bird
Male has arrived as of 3/22. Still waiting for the female.
