2/2/24 At least one, possibly two osprey were on the nest this morning at 8:30. My sister sent this picture to me, and it looks like there’s a second head on the left side of the nest. I will check tomorrow to verify that there were two. Confirmed by another picture sent on 2/2

Mary Ellen B reports: No activity. NOTE: We are unsure if this nest was productive. We have no report of incubation so we will consider the nest as non productive this season.

Mary Ellen B reports: I went by at 12 noon today, 6/15. The nest weathered the storm beautifully. There were two ospreys sitting atop the nest.

Mary Alice T happened to see an adult in the nest and sent a photo.

02/06/2023 by HHI Osprey Watch
Mary Ellen B reports: Two ospreys are seen flying around the nest. One video shows one osprey sitting on and then flying off the nest. I am attaching two still images I took from the videos. NOTE: THIS PAIR HAS BEEN NAMED CAL AND TINA.

Mary Ellen B reports: I’ve checked nest 8028 twice in July ( most recently on the 9th), and I did not see any birds on or around the nest on either visit. The nest looks intact and not to have sustained any damage in the storm Wednesday night. I will keep dropping by to see if the ospreys return.

Mary Ellen B added a photo of the family from 6-18-21.

Mary Ellen B reports: Excitement at nest 8028! At 8:30 this morning, I counted 3 osprey heads in the nest! One was definitely an adult. I believe the 2nd was probably an adult also, but the 3rd was a hatchling! NOTE: Because the nestling was large enough to be seen, we are guessing that the egg(s) hatched about May 31. (that is about 2+ weeks ago.)

05/25/2021 by HHI Osprey Watch
Mary Ellen B reports: One adult on the edge of the nest.

04/30/2021 by HHI Osprey Watch
Mary Ellen B reports: One osprey was sitting on a snag just out of the nest.

Mary Ellen B reports: This is a newly found nest which was set up in the database on March 8, 2021. We do not know much about the nest yet, but by the time it was located, the pair was already back. We will record the pair as having returned on 3/9/21 although they probably returned in the past week.
