Nest is on a Channel marker in the Potomac River very close to shoreline. This is an established nest located in a National Park. Across the river from Mount Vernon. One parent was on nest the other was nearby on a tree keeping a watchful eye. There is also an Eagles Nest located about 1/2 mile from here.

When we walked along the beach area the Osprey on the nest called out. Then decided to do a flyby to check us out. We stayed back away from the area, we did not want to upset her to much. Her mate stayed up on his lookout branch. She took off did a turn went up to about where we were standing except she was over the water turned again and headed back to her nest. She is beautiful.
