We have concluded that the osprey rebuilt this nest after it was removed from the tower but it was too late for this season. We hope they do return next season.

Christine B. reports:As I said I am keeping an eye on this nest. Here is a picture of the nest. It gives you an idea of well the nest has been rebuilt . Much larger then last year's nest. I think they are preparing for next year.

Christine B reports: 2020 Nest #4074 3:30pm The nest at this sight has been fully rebuilt . I observed one adult Osprey perched on the red light right above the nest for five minutes. She took to flight heading toward the ocean.

Christine B reports: I had reported in the beginning of the season that I watched painters remove the nest from that Tower. This tower can be observed from the Harris Teeter Parking lot. I observed a large Osprey with a white chest perched on the top of the tower with what looked like the beginning of a new nest below. A smaller Osprey with brown speckled breast was perched lower on the tower. Forty minutes into my observation time the larger Osprey flew away. Five minutes or so later the Osprey returned with a stick dropped it onto the other sticks. Unfortunately it fell to the ground and the adult Osprey took off again. I imagine to get another stick. NOTE: This might be the same pair, or possibly a young pair trying to build a nest. It is late in the season for any new nest to be successful, though. We will check on this, especially next season to see if a new nest is built where the old one was removed.

Christine B observes: I observed two men high up on the Hargray Tower today inside Sea Pines. It looked like they were painting the tower and I am sad to report the nest I had observed last Thursday was gone.
