Osprey Nest Platform
This is not a new nest, but it has not been used for a few years with all of the construction that was going on. It appears to have attracted a pair this year.

No activity at this nest for awhile now, sadly.

We haven't seen one on this nest recently. Maybe we're just missing it, I'm not sure.

One osprey was in this nest today, hunkered down. Possibly incubating?

There was one osprey standing on this nest today, so it looks like they are staying!

There was a pair of Osprey on this platform today. We're hoping they stay. Right now, there is a pair that we watch missing. Last season, they may have had their nest on a bridge crossing the Nanticoke after losing several locations at the nearby ballpark. This could be the same pair, still looking for that "right" and safe spot.
