all 2018 observations by Karen R.

07/06/2018 by CarolC
observer Karen R. reports: # 2549 today and saw NO activity (adults or chicks)

06/25/2018 by CarolC
observer reports: Both chicks were together in the nest and definitely smaller than the two adults but still much larger than I thought. NOTE: Because of the height and depth of this nest on the highway crossbar, it is nearly impossible to tell when an osprey is incubating eggs or when the chicks hatch.

06/24/2018 by CarolC
observer reports two juvenile osprey sitting outside the nest on the crossbar post. This is the first time we could verify chicks.

06/03/2018 by CarolC
Spotted one adult at the nest today. Note: This nest if high up on a roadway crossbar and the nest is deep. It is usually very hard to tell if there are young in the nest.

05/03/2018 by CarolC
observer reports: Drove by twice today ... one adult sitting in nest both times ...
