Female standing at edge of nest. One chick looking out of nest at times and stretching wings.

Both birds standing in the nest, on the edge which probably means hatching has started!

30-minute observation period mid-afternoon. One osprey low in nest. Head visible at times. Another osprey flew into the area. This second osprey flew around the nest in a wide circle, making smaller loops at times. Then flew off toward the south.

10:00 am Two osprey in nest. One flew away as I approached. The other sat quietly make a little chip sound. This behavior was repeated a half hour later when I passed by their nest again on the sidewalk below. When I turned to look back after I passed the nest, I saw an osprey leaving the nest (probably the second one, leaving the nest empty).

7:44 One osprey camera shy again and left nest. 8:56 Two osprey in the nest left before I could get a good picture. They really are spooked by people. I did take a picture of their nest though because there was definitely a large addition sticking up on the right side.

3/31/2020 12:57. I saw the head of one osprey in the nest, but as I approached it left the area quickly and the photo I did manage to take didn't show much detail because of the distance. This behavior reminds me of last year, when the Osprey in that nest were very nervous about people standing around trying to take their picture and would often leave.
