osprey observed mating, duckblind destroyed over the winter and now this former huge nest is very close to the water.

finally proof that the chicks are hatched!!! This nest is crazy deep and while everything Momma does indicates that there are babies I didn't have proof till today, sadly thanks to a jerk of a boater screaming past the nest at full speed. Still not sure if there are more than one hatchling but very excited to see the one!

I believe that the chicks hatched one week ago, Mother started standing versus laying down all the time. However the nest is deep and while it seems she is feeding I have not seen actual hatchlings here yet.
