14 March 2013: OSPR on branch near nesting tree (Loblolly Pine) calling. Could not observe any nest material in top of pine

Nest was built new this year because previous tree was blown down during Hurricane Irene last August. As of 29 May 2012, the adults are still incubating the eggs. There was some commotion on 18 May when a vulture tried to raid the nest. The Memorial Day weekend also stressed the birds when the campground was packed with many other "Happy Campers".
