Duck blind present, no nest.

2014-05-25 by osprey007
When first watching this nest, one adult was perched on a snag near nest. No osprey in nest. After about 30 minutes another osprey flew in with a big fish. The osprey that was perched nearby went to the nest and stood. The other osprey flew to the duck blind to eat the fish. If there were babies, I think there would have been feeding activity at nest. Standing in nest, not sitting

No activity at this nest today. It also doesn't appear there is any nest building/repair going on. Not sure if it is going to be officially occupied.

2013-03-03 by Jlspickler
I saw an adult sitting on this nest today, but no other adults approached. Not sure if this bird's mate has arrived yet.
