Bald Eagle visiting today.

The last week has been entertaining, The three stooges are flying now and trying to catch fish. They still seem to be sticking together in the evening. Not sure if all three are independent yet.

All three chicks seem to be active. One seems larger than the other two. I observed that both parents were out of the nest for a short time today.

Great news! I have been observing for weeks trying to get a chick count... I have finally verified definitely 3 chicks, however there may be 4 stay tuned.

A pair of ospreys are checking out the new platform. Until today only solo bird, being chased by pair from Barton Ave nest.

Observed a lone osprey in the nest, however the birds on the platform across the river are chasing it away. Optimistically they will work it as they did last year.

This nest was initially installed in 1999. The nest was unused until the last two or three years. Last season a pair had two chicks. Unfortunately during January 2020 a storm destroyed the platform. The platform was replaced by a new platform in early March 2020. I observed a pair of ospreys that arrived in the area on 03/22/20. Today there is a lone osprey on the new platform.
