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.
