Female continues to incubate through some very difficult weather. She is aggressive toward kayakers who have been disturbing her.

At this time the female osprey is definitely incubating her eggs, photo of her sitting very low in the nest.

I watched the Osprey continually bring nesting material for the 20 minutes I observed. The material seems to be finer material to line the larger sticks.

New nest for me...My son purchased a house above the Marsh and the previous owners reported this nest has been active for years.
