4/26 three day rain storm coming 56 defgrees Female flat back in nest. Can barely see her. Male gone but returned with food twice in the half hour i watched. The nest is on a utility pole so it will be hard to confirm eggs without a drone. She is acting like she is sitting on eggs.

4/3 one bird stands at nest and leaves occasionally 4/9 one bird standing at nest. I dont see any sitting on eggs.945-1015am cool 46 degrees. I almost left. Yippee 2 birds! At 1030 second bird arrives with sticks. Left then flew off and back. Landing on female that has been staying at nest. One bird sideways with wing in air. Looks like I may have witnessed breeding/copulation. Then he flew off. Came back about 5 minutes

Only same one bird. Saw another bird that looked like osprey but could not be identified. It flew by nest. Captured a fish in broad cov Then flew by nest but did not stop. Perhaps there is ajoher nest near wickets island. The one bird flew out of nest and had not returned in 30 minutes
