Pat R reports: The juveniles have fledged and the nest is now empty when I have checked it recently.
Pat R reports: Saw two good sized ospreys squawking in nest #7842 NOTE: We assume these are two youngsters that may have hatched about a month ago.
Pat R reports: I saw no activity at 7842 Hole 10 at DHGC
Pat R. Reports: saw an adult sitting on a branch outside the nest
Pat R reports: DHGC hole 10 may have had a head sticking up from the nest on Sat. May 16 NOTE: We guessed this might have been a hatchling. Probably correct since on 6/20 two "good sized" osprey were seen.
Pat R. found this nest on May 3. Because it was just located, we have limited information on the nest prior to the start of monitoring.
Pat R reports: I checked it out today and saw an osprey sitting on a branch, but couldn’t see anything in the nest from my point of view
