All three fledglings and an adult at the nest today
Chicks have fledged. One on the telephone pole nearby, the other two back at the nest
all's well with this nest
Three good size chicks in the nest. The nest was being attacked by two adult Osprey while both parents were on the nest protecting it.
Female shading chicks but I couldn't see how many

This nest site had been taken over by Bald Eagles last season and the Ospreys moved to a new platform put up by the electric company. But now the Eagles have moved to that nest site and the Ospreys apparently have moved back to their old home.
This nest has been taken over by Bald Eagles
Only two chicks on the nest with an adult but the young are fledge size and age so the third probably fledged ( I hope)
Three big fledglings ready to go
could clearly see two chicks today and possibly a third
Could only see one chick today but the others could be laying down. The female was on the nest as always
Osprey appears to be feeding chick/chicks

Two good sized chicks in the nest with the female
all is well, chicks getting big
both adults at the nest at times; feeding two chicks
at least two chicks in the nest
female feeding at least one chick, maybe two
Pair on the nest today. The male was bringing sticks and the female was sitting low as if she was incubating, but then got up and flew off. But eggs coming soon
One Osprey on the nest this morning. It took off after a Redtail hawk that apparently got to close.
Three birds in the nest today, one was an immature and one was an adult. I couldn't see the third bird well. Two birds flew to a near by structure.
the two chicks are doing well, the male is often in the nest with them. The female may have left already. He scolded me today, even though I wasn't near the nest at all
it is very hot (90s) and one parent that appeared to be the male was shading at least two small chicks
Both parents were shading babies ( hot day). I have never seen both parents do this at the same time. Could clearly see two chicks, possibly more
Osprey in a position on the nest today consistent with chick/chicks in the nest. A second bird came to the nest with a fish, but didn't leave it there while I watched
incubating osprey on the nest; the other bird near by
All is well with the nest. I notice that the pair is not as nervous about people as they were in the past. Either a different pair or they are becoming more accepting of humans.
incubating Osprey on the nest
Two Osprey on the nest today
still only see one bird at the nest sight
One bird at the nest, appears to be a banded female. Eating a fish
Fledgling sitting on power line behind the nest; no sign of the adult
when I got there the male was chasing a Great Blue Heron, relentlessly until it left the area. Fledgling on a pole back behind the nest.
one bird flying from the nest to the wires behind it. I would think it is the fledgling
no sign of any birds today, but I would say that the chick has fledged and the male and fledgling is what I saw on the wires last week.
this was the first of my nests to have an incubating female, so I would say the time was right to fledge.
I didn't see the chick today but when I approached the male came over to check me out. There were two adults on the wires near by and one could be the fledgling since he is old enough to fledge now. The branches on the nest rooted last year, and are now full grown bushes, so the chick could be laying low in there. The fact that the adults are hanging around and seem to be protecting the nest leads me to believe things are OK with this nest.
The chick is almost ready to fledge.
Can see one chick in the nest, but it is possible there is another
One Chick clearly visible. Possibly another but I kind of doubt it.
One bird on the side of the nest apparently tending to chicks. Still don't see little heads popping up but things seem fine.
Female feeding chick/chicks in nest
one bird incubating, the other perched nearby
female incubating. male nearby
The male brought a fish to the incubating female, then took it back, ate some, and brought it back to the female and left it with her.
Female in incubation position on the nest
Both birds working on the nest today
The pair was on the nest today
was in the area late and checked on the nest a little before sundown. Junior was on the nest while an adult was on a nearby tower. pic attached
The chick has left the nest, appeared to be on a telephone pole behind the nest. One adult was also present
The large chick was on the nest alone when I got there, with the male on his usual perch a quarter mile away. The female arrived with some sticks to upgrade the nest.
Chick still in the nest, not ready to fledge yet.
chick is getting big. both parents in the nest with it. All is well
All is well with this nest after the bad storms two day ago. The chick is getting big
all is well with this nest. both parents are usually on the platform with the chick whenever I go there. they seem very devoted. pic attached
It appears that only one chick in the nest. Pic attached
This nest is fine. Can still only clearly see one chick. Both parents very attentive.
checked the nest this morning, could clearly see one chick's head, possibly two. Pic attached
Observed the female fussing with or feeding chicks, but I couldn't see heads yet.
A redtail hawk got two close with a shorebird or young duck in it's talons. The male Osprey viciously attacked. The hawk seemed surprised and landed on a nearby pole for a while before heading off to his own nest a half mile away.
Pair observed feeding a chick. Pic attached
Checked on the nest on 5/18 and the hen was sitting much higher on the nest than when she is incubating. She may have a chick
an Osprey has consistently been on this nest for the past week so I assume it is incubating
The birds were seen coputlating on my mid week trip. Should be incubating soon
Both birds at the nest today. It's a good thing this nest is a little hard to get to because the pair is very spooky
An Osprey was observered on the platform today by Chris T. First time this year
This nest is still empty, but there was an Oprey flying nearby with a fish
Checked on the nest today and it was empty. The last two visits only one bird was present and it appeared to be the female. She was obviously stressed, calling loudly and flying about. Apparently something happened to the male, who was a very attentive mate.
Checked the nest again today. Again only one bird around the nest but it didn't appear to be caring for anything in the nest. It looks to be the female, no sign of the male. No sign of chicks. Pretty sure the nest has failed but I will check again in a few day.
Only one bird at the nest today and it seemed stressed. I hung around for a half hour and left, but came back a half hour later and no sign of the other bird. I don't see any chicks but that doesn't mean they aren't there; they would only be a little over a week old. Still I don't have a good feeling about the nest today. I'll check it mid week.
Could see the pair feeding when I first got there, but they are always concerned when they see me, even though there is a considerable canal between us. The male immediatley flys over me and the female hunkers down on the nest. I think I will have to be more stealth if I want to get pics of the chicks.
Very windy day but both birds battling the wind on the nest. Lots of beak action in the nest, I suspect a chick. I will keep a close eye on for the nest few days.
Very aggressive Red Tail around the nest today, Female sitting higher in the nest may indicate a chick but I didn't see any feeding activity.
Looking at the pictures from today I can see there is a turtle shell in the nest. possibly was dinner or just decoration.
Things seem to be going well with this nest. When I arrived the male was incubating and the female returned shortly afterwards and took over. The male seemed excited and flew back and forth over the nest the entire time I was there, about 15 minutes. Hopefully chicks soon.
A bit of drama this morning. Another male was trying to land on the nest that was occupied by both of the pair. He was rebuffed and eventually flew off.
Things seem to be going well with this nest. I watched the male give the female a break and she got up and stretched her wings while he incubated. So far so good
Checked on the nest this morning. One bird incubating, the other hunting near by.
Checked in on the nest this morning. One bird incubating while the other was eating a fish nearby on a pole.
By the way, this is the cheesiest Osprey nest I've ever seen, but I guess this pair is fine with it.
Visited the nest today. Everything looks good. They mated while I was there. took a couple of pics
Visited the nest today and there is an incubating Osprey on it. Observed a male Osprey hunting not far from the nest
Birds copulated on April 1... Have awrded offf another Osprey and, yesterday, and immature bald eagle.
