juvie still coming and going sporadically, smart juvie is studying close to home, like going to a community college before blasting off for the big world of university

juvenile was back on the nest sometime late last evening or this morning, was crying for fish for a short time then flew south, it possibly just returned from a few days excursion to parts unknown so that they might be known on its return in 2022!

one fledgling on nest, with 2 fledglings and adult on far snag, both homes directly infront of the nesting platform are now occupied so the ospreys will likely spend less time on the nest

This nest has been a great success story, first season after relocation of a nuisance nesting pair. first chick fledged on the 23rd, second on the 25th and the third this morning! this nesting pair has even been in the paper. very thrilled with this project.

this pair was needing a safe nesting platform for the past 4 years but I didnt think that the only available location, on a land strip across from the homes, could be safe or allowed because its owned by Natl Guard. But they approached me through Tristate Bird Rescue and De center for the inland Bays and my Team Osprey, all volunteers, went to work and placed a tall platform just about 100 ft from the roof. The ospreys arrived 3-20-20 and quickly fell in love with their new home. Fingers crossed for young this year.
