I saw the chicks(?) yesterday. I don’t think it was the adults. Big but didn’t seem to be flying yet. Horrible heat yesterday and today. Didn’t appear to be chicks there today;Mom stopped at nest this morning but flew away.

7/21 4:00: I saw what appeared to be one of the chicks perched on a nearby light pole so I guess they are starting to fly. Other one on nest? I can’t tell the difference. If so, no parents around when I visited

She sits so low in nest that it appears to be empty. Then she stands and you can see her head and back. She’s up and down, doesn’t appear to be sitting steadily yet.

Female flew to original nest, male followed, then copulated.

I have only observed one osprey at this location. could just be bad timing on my part.

I believe this nest failed. No activity for over 1 1/2 months

The male has been observed hanging out in the trees to the west of the nest. The female appears to be incubating.

04/16/2014 by cdabirds
Finally getting a chance to check this nest. Happily the female is sitting on the nest and the male was observed perched in a nearby tree, just hanging out.

Observed ospreys in the area and located this nest atop a light pole in the Sycamore Recreation Area. The nest box is placed atop the light pole, not sure who placed the box. One almost ready to fledge juvenile in the nest with one adult today around 2PM
