There is a nest on the cell tower now with an osprey. Saw today for the first time. There was no nest last year.

Empty nest. No birds it at 11:25am, or when I drove back by at 1:20pm. For photos of nest, see: https://ebird.org/checklist/S29993998

Have seen 2-3 osprey in the area, flying or being chased by other birds; circling the sky or perched on high branches looking for prey. Have NOT seen nest activity in the past 2-3 weeks. 3rd osprey may be grown baby.
