Platform was installed 100' off a rural roadway within a protected wetland by Quinte Conservation on February 09, 2012. There is another platform 2km due south of this location that successfully raised two young in the summer of 2011. I am very hopeful that I will see my first Osprey residents in April 2012.

Nest is located in a dead tree in a private pond on the west side of the Ellenton-Omega Road in Colquitt County, Georgia approximately 1-mile north of Ellenton, Georgia. I have not visited the site since January 12, 2012. That evening I saw one Osprey perched 300-yards north of the nest. Last spring, 07MAY11 I photographed the nest with two nestlings. http://www.flickr.com/photos/44510955@N05/sets/72157626669909534/with/5697762354/

San Joaquin Marsh and Wetlands. Near Irvine, California. I am happy to report that this pair successfully fledged two healthy Osprey chicks this season. They have been a joy to watch; learning to fish and survive.

Kent Lake has supported a colony since the mid-1960s. I started monitoring 11 nests in 1981; the colony peaked in the mid-1990s at ~50 active nests and has since plateaued at about 25-30 active nests each year. In 2008 a pair of Bald Eagles established a nest and have produced young each subsequent year. Ospreys have continued to sustain about 25-30 active nests each year. Of 41 nest sites identified in 2012, seven nests (17.1%) were unused, 34 (82.9%) were classified as occupied and 27 (65.9%) were classified as active.

This large nest sits on the metal scaffolding above a 100 year-old working railroad bridge across the Willamette River. It is best visible from the Dave Clark Trail on the south side of the river or from the Eagle Trail in Takena Landing Park on the north side of the river. I first noticed this nest in 2012, but it looks like it's been there a while.

Large nest on top of a very tall former bridge pier in the middle of the Willamette River, this nest is approximately 25 meters above the water. Readily visible from Montieth Riverfront Park. I first noticed this nest in the early 1980's. Summer concerts in the park sometimes attract up to 6,000 people.

A large nest on top of a light pole at the Bryant Park (Albany, OR) softball fields. This nest was first noticed by my wife Carol in 1996. The lights on this pole, which serve 2 adjoining softball fields, are held by horizontal brackets, providing an "accidental" platform. During night games in the summer it is very noisy and the nest is right in the middle of the action. However, the osprey have thrived. Nest is close to both the Calapooia and the Willamette Rivers.

A pair of osprey have built a nest atop a local cell tower. They did this before a few years back, but the phone company evicted them. I am curious if the family of osprey that is there now is descendant from the pair that nested there before.
