younger chicks n this nest, hard to get a good look but they appear to be about 5-6 weeks of age

have been seeing both adults on nest with some feeding behavior so today tried to get chick head count but unable to see any from distance of Bluecoast parking lot even with my scope, one adult was on nest rim looking into nest so I do think hatchlings still alive. might not get a count until the chicks get much bigger.

possibly an incubating osprey in the nest... hard to see but one was very still on the nest today, i wish i would be there at the correct time to see the second ospr.

one fly to ad from nest today, the nest is looking good but i am not certain that this isnt just a hopeful male making a nice home for a possible suitor? i havent seen a second ospr

old nesting platform had been placed in a wooded area next to running track, team osprey relocated platform out into marsh at request of the Natl Guard, osprey pair was nearby, lost their snag nest over the winter and quickly claimed this platform however i see bald eagles harassing them and so no new nest material has been added, but they do come and go to the platform
