The nest failure could be either storm or Eagle predation as a pair of Eagles nest across the marsh in a tree. Also, there have been storms all month. Both adults continue to hang out at the platform but haven't attempted to rebuild.

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.

My son reported seeing the pair on the platform on 03/11/2023. I also saw this that evening.

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