observer reports: Observations: One female Osprey sitting deep in nest and calling for mate. No mate in sight. No other activity. Once again, I could only get a shot of just the top of her head. Many people playing tennis and moderate noise below. Warmish. Did not see mate nor any chicks; did not hear any chicks.

observer reports: One female Osprey sitting on nest on a light post in the middle of a court. Many people playing tennis and lots of noise. Female making lots of calling noise to her mate who was on a nearby tree eating a fish. This went on and on and on. Finally the male flew over to the nest and dropped a bit of fish off and then flew back off with a very large chunk of fish and proceeded back to the nearby tree where he frequently sits/eats. Female ate the meager offering and after about 15 minutes, flew off the nest to the area of the ocean/beach (presumably to get some more food) Male continued to eat his fish. Cool and slightly breezy evening. Did not observe any chicks or hear any.
