3 large babies in nest, making a racket. Watched one stand at the edge of the nest and flap, but didn't get anywhere. Shouldn't be long!

Correction- there are 3 babies in the nest! As the oak trees between my house and the nest in the marsh get bigger and leafier it is harder see the nest.

Babies! I can see two babies in the nest, with Mom feeding them.

She has been sitting on the nest every day- very conscientious!Not much else to report.

The nest has been rebuilt and she appears to have settled in. When they rebuilt they included a flat piece of wood or bark which sticks up and acts as a privacy fence, making it difficult to spy on them!

Since the nest blew down over a week ago, they have rebuilt somewhat. They spent several days sitting on the pole or flying around, and finally got to work rebuilding. The new nest is smaller and messier but they appear to be done building.

Sad to report that the nest blew down in the winds on Saturday, leaving 2 birds on a bare pole Easter morning. As of noon time today they are gone.

First osprey arrive 3/25, followed by #2 on 4/6. Spent 2 days sitting on pole and thinking about things; have begun to build nest on top of utility pole. So far so good
