Jerry R. reports: No activity at nest 2674. And earlier in the week, on August 6, I saw no activity.

Jerry R. reports: Nest2674: Initially no activity. Then 20 minutes later 2 ospreys fly from the trees which separate the two soccer fields to the nest and return to the same trees. There was an osprey in the nest which was peering over the side and chirping. The head was smaller and the chirping was softer than the what I saw and heard originally, so I assume this was a baby. This was exciting!
