one osprey on nest, could be a looky lou
one osprey on the nest perch today but could not comfirm if it was adult or juvenile
juvenile perched on nest today, no adults seen
one juvenile and one adult on nest today
pretty sure this chick fledged before today but i just could not confirm it, finally saw it make a short flight around the cove and land, it looks like a newbie in the air!
Since I am monitoring a foster osprey in a nearby nest I have been watching this chick starting to exercise and move about in the nest much more lately, standing on the nest edged and self feeding with adult female watching from the other side of the nest. this chick should fly soon.
6 pm, 1 adult on the corner board of the platform, second adult, most likely female feeding just one chick in the nest.
female feeding with one chick visible, male on fave pole at waters edge
one in nest, hunched posture, possibly brooding the young
Both adults on the nest today and one appeared to be feeding chicks...?
have not seen much activity but one is deep in the nest when i drive by
continuing to incubate, the second is often perched on the corner board of the platfrom.
Finally today around 4:45 pm I saw one osprey deep in the nest and the second on the platform t perch. When I returned about 45 minutes later both were still in the same position. Definitely incubating posture. As I watched I scanned the cove and there were 2 other pairs out on the channel markers trying to build nests. Beach Cove is a popular osprey hangout.
both just standing at the nest, eating or perching...
both coming and going to the nest, they eat their fish in the nest. no signs of nest bowl prep
no incubation but the pair is very busy at the nest
both at nest today, no signs of incubation
Pair was on platform today, one on t perch and one in the nest but no signs of incubating.
Both osprey on nesting platform around 2 pm today. One appears to be eating. Saw one nest building few days ago as I passed on Rt. 1
end of season- no ospreys seen in a few weeks
adults still at nest bringing fish and enjoying their summer
The pair continues to hang out at the platform
no nesting but the pair sits on the corner boards of the platform most of the day
if they were incubating then the nest failed around may 14th when I saw one on the nest and one nearby. today I can confirm both up on corner boards of the platform, one with fish. I came past again later and still they were both on the corner boards. we have had quite a bit of rain last few weeks and this may, or may not, be the reason for nest fail.
one perched on nest corner perch but can not confirm mate incubating
I believe this pair is incubating but it is becoming difficult to see the nest from the road, Route 1. once my boat is in water I will confirm
pair has been off and on nest, sometime only one seen for long periods of time, may be a young/new pair
pair on nest today! See photo
