This tower site has been used for at least two years. Today we observed one osprey making multiple trips to what remains of last year's nest with restoration branches.

It has been a little over a month since the adults at the nest have started acting like the clutch had hatched - constant incubation had ceased, and adults appeared to be feeding something low in the nest...but there was no other way to verify existence or number of chicks. Today, finally!, we saw at least one.

July 4, 2012. Independence Day takes on a different meaning! Stopped by to see if the frustrated chick in the nest was making any progress with flight. Saw one of the adults perched on the bars around the nest, but no chick in or around the nest. Went into worry mode - this nest's location on a cell tower between two busy roads leaves very little room for flight practice error. A few minutes later we saw another osprey sail in and land comfortably on the rails - took a look through the scope and we were thrilled to see that this new arrival was the chick/fledgling returning to the nest!

July 1, 2012 Stopped by to check on this nest, found one VERY frustrated chick flapping and vocalizing and not achieving lift-off. The only component left to master is The Hop, and this bird will be in the air!
