2010: Nest site built by Marvin Black of Minnesota. Visiting Osprey used it as a lookout post for two years. Some twigs were brought to the nest site but never enough to be considered a nest. 2012: Two Osprey claimed the nest site and made feeble attempts to build a nest. Most of the twigs blew away. 2013: Nest was more substantial and the Osprey pair occupied the nest. 2014: January: Pair always around nest. In March one chick flew from the nest to nearby rocks along river. Florida Wildlife (FWC) expert advised that chick was too young to feed itself but too old for parents to feed it. FWC person tried to capture chick but it flew to inaccessible spot. Chick died two days later.
