5:25pm: at Chesapeake Yachts, I watched 3 or possible 4 ospreys. One perched alone in tree with greenery. 5:37pm: Two perched together at top of leafless tree at edge of river, and in vicinity of first Osprey and Eagle's nest. Last osprey vocalized, flew in low along east bank of river and landed across river at nest on square wooden platform.
