Nesting Diaries

This nest was destroyed 3/28/2014 in 67 MPH straight wind storm. the Osprey's are currently rebuilding although the nest looks a bit tattered. I noticed one Osprey the other day and it looked a bit tired after the severe storm. Prior to this I had not seen any nesting behavior so I am hoping there were no eggs. I don't want to walk in to look so that I am not adding any extra stress

My favorite pair are back and I wish another wonderful year for them I witnessed mating on 3/22/2013. To me they have picked the oddest nest substrate but they did well last year so hear is to fingers crossed for 2013.

Never thought these two would leave home, and actually one just hung out for quite a while. But then about the 3rd week of August the 2nd bird fledged. The nest has blown apart in the storms and rain. I have not seen any birds in and around the nest area but there are many young birds and adults still in the area.

I have been remiss in getting pictures but i am hestitant to stop and draw too much attention to this pair. I know they have 2 Juvies and they are doing well. Will try to stop in the next few days
