I watched the nest on 3/31/15 for one hour beginning at 11:30am. The nest is completed and a pair of osprey were resting on the nest: one of the edge and the other on the wooden extension supporting the nest. At 11:40, the female flew to the neighboring #2 post while the male continually "chirped" from the nest. (8 quick chirps rising and sometimes falling in pitch.) At 12:05, the female returns to the frame extension. Actually both birds appear equal in size with white throats which surprised me. At 12:18 one hunted for food from the edge of the river and quickly returned with what looked like a frog. At 12:25, female (?) returned to the #2 marker post. 4/5/15: Easter morning - I watched the osprey for one hour from 9-10am. No sign of incubating yet as female remained on edge of nest. Just periodic flying and hunting by both birds independent of each other. Female left nest twice to bully a nearby cormorant and gull to leave marker posts she deemed too close to the nest! 4/12/15 - Observed nest for 30 minutes from 4:30-5:00pm. Incubation has begun! Observed Female catch a fish and take it to the nest to share with the male who was sitting on egg(s).
