Osprey Nest Platform
This nest and nest platform has been here for ten years or so, as of 2012. A pair previously nested quite nearby on an old duck blind that finally fell down completely in a hurricane; there has been a pair in the vicinity for at least 15 years. Ospreys have successfully raised babies here at least most years since the platform was built.

Nesting Diaries

03/21/2012 by C3
Yesterday both ospreys were sitting on a new empty nest platform 100 yards east of the existing nest.

Osprey had returned to the area by 3/1/12, but 3/4/12 was the first day they were seen on the nest. The pair was observed on the nest that day together, and again on 3/6/12. They have been flying to and from the nest, but serious nest-building activity has not yet been observed this year.
