So far - 1 sighting of what could be the couple - not sure - no nesting activity has occurred.

Jean reports: While I still see the pair hunting and occasionally sitting in the tree no nest was ever finished - just a bunch of sticks - an attempt perhaps to create the framework.

The pair have succeeded in constructing what looks like the very beginning of a nest in the tree. The visit often and still can be seen occasionally bringing Spanish Moss and sticks to the build site. Maybe next year!!

It seems that the nest building activity has ceased over the past week. The pair are still occasionally seen peached in the tree and fishing in the lagoon however I can see no visible evidence of a nest. Perhaps they are a young pair just practicing?

Joanne V reports: 2 Osprey are getting nest materials. I could not see an actual nest, even on expanded photos, but on the one pic, you can see 2 together in the tree where they have been bringing material. They looked a bit smaller than typical, so perhaps a “first” nest. Don’t think they are the former occupants of the Cottages nest. Jean will keep monitoring. Evidently it can take 2-3+ weeks to complete a nest. Jean first noticed this about 10 days ago.

Jean F and Joanne V initially located this nest in the building stages in early April. Because of this, we do not have exact dates, but will note the adult arrival as April 1st as a guess. We’ll keep an eye on them and let you both know if there is any progress. Perhaps they’re “practicing” home

Jean reports: The pair are back at it this morning carry sticks and Spanish Moss but there is still little evidence of a nest.
