Male was sitting in nest calling, then flew away. Later saw the pair in the nest and male chased away an intruder male. Nest in good condition

Can't see if there's an osprey in the nest. Nest in good condition. Male on nearby lightpole flew to abandoned tennis court nests' light pole. Monk parakeets live in that nest.

Osprey perched, flew away, then came back to nest. Possibly a female. Nest condition is good.

02/12/2017 by LarkH
Perched osprey that has very light brown feathers, but it's not distinct enough to be a necklace, so it might be a male? It was communicating with nearby ospreys. The nest is in good condition.

Nest condition hard to see. Osprey perched on nest, unsure of gender. Male eating fish on lightpole nearby.
