Both Ospreys have returned to this nest and have been actively rebuilding it. The nest has increased in size from last year.

Early this afternoon, I passed by this nest and didn't see a bird. But a few minutes later, one osprey was on the nest. It flew off, when a bald eagle cruised overhead causing a disturbance.

In the evening of 25 July 2014, this nest had 1 juvie and 1 adult in the nest. On the evening of the 26th, there was one bird, but there were 2-3 osprey nearby on light posts. However, there are 2 other nearby nests, so it's hard to tell which birds belong with which nests.
