Sycamore Landing #1
(37.4411, -76.7451)
Osprey Nest Platform
One of three nesting platforms located at Sycamore Landing, erected in 2007. A pair had been nesting on the metal roof of a community pier. They were not producing likely due to the heat of the metal or frequent disturbances by people using the pier. As soon as we put up this platform, they moved from the pier to the platform and successfully fledged chicks.

Female arrived shortly after that posting on the 19th and the male shortly thereafter. They have a nicely constructed nest now!

No birds on this nest for unknown reasons. Lots of nest building activity on the other two platforms in the area.
