Nesting Diaries

nest not active, one osprey visited in April, saw no mate and eventually the lone osprey left the area

reports are the adults remain at or near the nest hoepfull will be active next season. their egg that was fostered into 662 , CCB #6001, is due to fledge in a week!

no nesting confirmed so I will not mark it as a fail or incubation initiated, this nest is in MD, not in my normal area to monitor

06/13/2020 by baygirl
no nesting activity as of today, most likely the second nesting failed

05/19/2020 by baygirl

I was called thru TSBRR to assist nest relocation. The prior nuisance nests on boats destroyed along with one egg taken from sparse boat nest (laid overnight) that egg was then fostered into DE FW nest # 662 on 4-29-20. Landowner built a platform, added nest material I left when retrieving the egg. Platformplaced morning of 4-30-20 but the day produced heavy rains and very high winds. Osprey arrived onto new platform this morning and immediately began bringing nest material. relocation a success.
