Nickname: Pelican Bay 2

This nest has been really quiet this year. I'm not even noticing the osprey poop on the sidewalk underneath, so I'm a little worried. . .

Observed an adult osprey sitting in the nest February 12, 2013. First sighting of an osprey at this nest this season!

This has been such a successful nest the past years. During April, the female was hunkered down and the male was in his usual place perched on a nearby tree. There seemed to be a little activity in the nest early in May, and I assumed there were chicks. Then all got quiet again. My husband observed the male and female perched together on a nearby palm. We haven't seen them since, and it's clear the nest has been abandoned.

The update below is an update for another nest. This nest has been pretty quiet, and I'm not sure what's going on. I have seen only one bird there. Maybe they got a late start.
