Photos of this nest
Male was observed bringing in stick and doing some nestorations. Female is staying perched right next to nest-did not leave-even when 4 crows came to watch her. There is constant crow noise and activity around this nest and its neighboring nest(2/10 mile away). I believe crows may be nesting in a tree about 75 feet away from osprey nest. I can partially see a nest but only could hears crows.
Pair was on and off nest. Male was eating a big flounder(?) on top of a close telephone pole. Female kept calling to him to bring it to nest. Nest is getting bigger. No eggs yet.
Pair was seen on nest together and flying in tandem to fishing spot :)
Observed pair on nest and mating on nest on 4/4. On two trips back (4/5 & 4/7) have seen both on nest and bringing branches to nest. Saw dad doing nestorations on 4/7 then went flying with mom.
