44/D, produced at this nest in 2016 was re-sighted down in Palm Beach, FL!

2017-07-20 by TLJ3
The largest nestling is starting to stretch jump and flap wings. It's the first time we could see a third nestling.

2016-09-04 by TLJ3
Watching the last remaining osprey eating a fish. The other 3 osprey have been gone for over a week Not too sure of the exact dates they left.

2016-03-26 by TLJ3
We are spotting three osprey circling and hovering high above nest. Not settled in yet but they are here.

2015-09-06 by TLJ3
Our osprey family seems to be gone for the season. Last sighting was yesterday (Sat 9/5) morning.

2015-08-21 by Ben Wurst
This nest produced four young but three fledged. Thanks for the reports, TLJ3!!

2015-07-18 by TLJ3
Three young are testing their wings flying above nest all morning!

2015-07-05 by TLJ3
We have a clear view this morning of three little heads and very active parents taking care of them.

2015-04-05 by TLJ3
We just got back to the island ourselves and upon arrival observed one osprey (smaller seemed to be male) on perch on Friday April 3rd. We aren't sure of his exact arrival date. The larger female osprey showed up on the nest Sunday morning April 5th.

2014-10-14 by Ben Wurst
Surveyed this nest on July 2. No young for the second year in a row... Not sure what is causing them to fail!!

2014-08-17 by TLJ3
No chicks this year.

2014-04-05 by TLJ3
Last time we observed nest was March 22nd. There were no signs of activity. Today April 5th there is a pair of Osprey building a nest.

2013-09-14 by TLJ3
The nest seems to be empty except for random visits from seagulls and black birds (crows or starlings). The last time we saw an osprey on the nest was last Sunday, 9/8/13.

2013-08-23 by TLJ3
The nest is empty but I can see one osprey on the perch on the ground and another not far from the nest also on the ground near a small pool of water. It's hard to tell the difference between young and adult at this distance.

2013-08-04 by TLJ3
The third chick fledged mid morning.

2013-08-04 by TLJ3
Two of the three chicks fledged in the past week. The smallest chick is on the nest resting between hopping and flapping the wings, landing on the post and then back into the nest. An adult is patiently waiting on the other post.

2013-07-20 by TLJ3
The chicks are as big as footballs now. Two are hopping and flapping stretching their wings. The third one is about the same size but is still laying low, not as active. We think the most active one could fly at anytime and we will be excited to see it happen.

2013-06-30 by TLJ3
Can see nest thru a spotting scope from quite a distance. Today we can positively identify that the active couple are feeding a young one.

2013-06-30 by TLJ3
This nest has 3 chicks! The father just brought back a fish. He is perched beside the nest. I can see the mother feeding the young, three distinct little heads. Seem the be similar in size, flapping their skinny wings and reaching out to their mother for a meal. This is the best view we've had so far and its great to see this osprey nest thriving.
