October 23 I keep seeing a juvenile Osprey flying overhead and I believe, though I'm not certain, this is one of the birds from this nest. I saw him again today with a fish. All of the other Ospreys have left some time ago.

Sometime between July 10 and July 13 the pair lost one of their 3 chicks. When I returned on July 17th I noted only 2 chicks in the nest and I looked at previous photos and saw 3 only through July 10th.

on 6/01/12 I observed a change in behavior. The male had been perched near the nest while the female laid in the nest. On this day, the male brought a fish to the nest and the female tore pieces and, while I couldn't see at the time, she fed them to at least one chick. After enlarging photos there appear to be at least 3 chicks possibly 4.

Observed pair mating again today. The male then left for about an hour and returned with a small flounder. He made a teasing pass over the nest but moved to a perch and ate it rather than give it to the female.
