I have been able to verify that this nest has two fully grown young ospreys. I haven't seen them fly, yet, but I haven't checked this nest often. I will look for evidence of fledging (empty nest) my next time out.

I just discovered this nest a few days ago while monitoring two other nests beneath the bridge. I have seen the mother and one young osprey, but I have not actively monitored this nest and we are well into the fledging time period. I'll post anything else I see that is notable, including whether I can see more than one young osprey in the nest.
