7/6/23 Osprey sighted standing to the side of the nest for at least 20 minutes. . Nest is very high and hard to see into without camera gear.

Male was in air "acrobatics" with three Crow when I arrived, both he and I assume the Female who was sitting in the nest were very vocal. He flew around dipping & diving with Crow behind him, and went the direction of the Atlantic with the Crow on his heels when I lost sight of him. Female never left nest. Photo updated.

I had heard and seen Osprey in this immediate area over the last month, but could not locate the nest until today when I saw a Male fly in with fish. The nest is very hard to see as it is very "hidden" in the cell tower, but upon getting out my lens I was able to confirm the nest, with most likely female in the nest, and Male with fish. Uploaded photos of today's visit.
