Second Platform at 9 Tall Pines- rear right of yard.
(32.2546, -80.7283)
Osprey Nest Platform
Two platforms were erected in the same yard in early 2019. The first was to replace the fallen nest branch of a long tern nesting pair. At the same time, a second platform was added in another near by pine. This second platform is in the far RIGHT side of the back yard near the lagoon. This pair is named Tally and Pinely

Elaine M reports: I tried to get pics of the osprey in 9137 yesterday and Wednesday. (7-19&20) Both days as soon as the osprey, standing on the platform saw me, flew away. The first picture is more inclusive "live" on my cell phone. I didn't check the nest today. Again very vocal. However, I have not seen any fledglings.

Elaine M reports: I could only see one osprey in the tree next to the nest. However, there was communication between the osprey in the tree and another osprey nearby. Lots of chirping coming from the nest today-----------the usual! NOTE: This pair is now called Tally and Pinely

Elaine M reports: This family is fine after the 6-14-23 storm and sure were on high "volume'. today! Actually, their normal volume!

Elaine M reported: I checked the "Goodrich" ospreys this afternoon. As I thought, there is at least one chick. I saw a total of three ospreys. 6 photos added NOTE: WE NOW THINK THERE REALLY WERE NO CHICKS.

Barbara N reports: 9137 is occupied by one Osprey standing. Watched it for awhile and it just stands there.

Barbara N reports: Just wanted to let you know Osprey have returned but not on 2544. If you recall 2 platforms were built behind 9 Tall Pines, near the lake. Well…..the good news is that ospreys have returned, but they are no longer using the first (original) platform. The other platform is being fixed up and we are watching them go back and forth. Although we do not have direct sight to the nest, we can walk next door and view the second platform (which they are now using) from across the lake. We are very excited that at least one pair is using the “facility”. NOTE: We used 4/16 as the first sighting of the pair together, although that is just a guess.
