Wendy D. reports: Several times prior to the 2nd I went by and saw the juvenile Osprey sitting on side of nest. As of Aug 2nd I have not seen it. I think we can safely say it fledged. What a thrill. Sign me up for these nests next year!!

Wendy reports: Last Thursday the 19th I saw the young Osprey squawking from the NEST and an adult flew by during my 15 min. Today I again see the juvenile squawking constantly and the Lissa sitting and preening in the next light pole.

observer Wendy D. reports: Both the 21st of June and today, I observed Mom Lissa and a chick in her nest, number 2550.

observer reports: Nest 2550 was quiet but I could see the top of a head moving in the nest. I am not certain but it appeared to be a chick. It did not have crisp color delineation like the parents do.

05/30/2018 by JohnF
Observer reports that LIssa, the Mom, appeared to be feeding one chick. I could see a head just at the top of the nest and a second chick moving close to the mother, separate from the other, but not really able to see much. Verified 2 chicks. Note: based on this, our best guess is that they hatched around the 15th of May....but that is our guess.

05/03/2018 by JohnF
observer reports: I saw Mom on the nest today! No chicks yet that I could see and they were just sitting so we are still in waiting.

04/12/2018 by JohnF
observer reports: Lissa was on her nest and her mate was standing on the edge of the nest.

04/06/2018 by JohnF
incubation started about this date based on our best estimates.

04/06/2018 by JohnF
observer reports: Nest 2550 there was a bird sitting horizontally and low in the nest. I have seen an osprey on the edges but never in this nest before. I will call her Lissa. That is with two S's. It is appropriately a supreme mother goddess in African mythology
