Clutch hatchingReason for nest failureI noticed on Sunday 6/11, there was an hour or two here and there with no adult at the nest. Mom returned for the night and was there in the morning when I woke at 6am. Later Monday afternoon, as storms were rolling in there was no adult in sight.

Nesting Diaries

There was been no adult at the nest for almost 24 hours. While I am not positive there was definitely eggs, I can't imagine why she would've sat on the nest 24 hours a day since early April. I have no idea what could've happened as the weather has been good. So sad. I had hoped that year three would be the magic year!

No copulating yet, but they have been busy fortifying the nest. Lots of new sticks and twigs.

Both Edward and Eleanor have been at the nest since sunrise.

03/31/2023 by knlowry
Eleanor arrived! They spent a lot of time at the nest today.

03/30/2023 by knlowry
Edward was at the nest bright and early this morning. I am hoping to see Eleanor soon!

Male (Edward) observed at the nest all day. No nesting seen, but he was eating fish on his perch.

03/27/2023 by knlowry
As of 3/26/23 there has been no additional sightings of the Osprey. I am hoping that Edward and Eleanor return this week!

03/23/2023 by knlowry
This morning there was a female on the nest for approximately 30 minutes. No feeding or nesting seen yet.

Alot has happened in six weeks. I was positive we had eggs as Eleanor was not leaving the nest except to eat the fish her mate brought. Unfortunately we had some extended stormy weather that brought extremely high winds around Mother's Day and Edward did not come to the nest or bring food for 5 days. On Tuesday May 10, Eleanor had no choice but to leave the nest to feed herself. During the last two weeks of May I would occasionally see one osprey or another at the nest/perch, but I would rarely see them together. I can't be sure that something did not happen to Edward. Yesterday, 5/31, a pair of Osprey were back at the perch/nest all day. The male is bring nesting material (although the nest is perfectly intact) and fish. They have been mating. They are still both there this morning. I am wondering if this is a new pair....or just a new male? Seems very late in the season for eggs.

We have had a terrible few days of heavy rain, but with the sun shining this morning Edward and Eleanor have been very busy! Fish for breakfast, lots of nesting material coming to the platform and some copulating in between! Fingers crossed for viable eggs this year!

04/05/2022 by knlowry
Edward has spent the last few days eating a lot of fish at the platform and his perch. Eleanor occasionally joins him. This morning they were both at the platform and Edward was starting to bring in sticks for nesting. It appears that last seasons nest was completely destroyed over the winter.

Edward and Eleanor arrived today. They spent most of the day just perched on the platform - there has been no nest building (other than one large stick) just yet. Of course we are having some bad storms here this afternoon and they will last well into the early morning hours. They are hanging on for dear life out there!
