5/5/23 Alot of activity in the Nest, Female in the nest, Male bringing in Fish. I am confident in saying there may be Chicks in the Nest although I can not get a clear view through the lens just yet. Photos updated today.

5/1/23 Severe Weather in the area on 4/30/23, so today we went to check on local nesting sites. At first we didn't see or hear any Osprey here, but within a few minutes the Male appeared and flew directly over the nest, and a chorus of calls came from within the nest. I would be confident in saying the female was definitely in the nest, as well as atleast two chicks. The vocalizations stopped after he flew away from nest, and began again a few minutes later he flew back over the nest. Male was circling and being antagonized by a Fish Crow while in flight.

Both Osprey present. One in nest, one perched nearby which took to flight while we were there. Several Crows hanging around the lower struts of the tower.

3/11/23 - Went by to see if nest was being rebuilt as it was removed in Feb. 2023. I didn't see signs of rebuild at that time. As of today's re-check, Nest is well under way being re-built. Witness Osprey on the tower, nest; however by the time I got safely parked, they flew off and I didn't get to get photo. Will return to check this site.
