Two osprey spotted at nest, appear to be male and female pair.

We are observing lots of activity; fixing up the nest and hunting for food.

I'm not sure when the osprey arrived. I saw a bird on the platform a week or so ago. But yesterday I heard and saw one on the nest, (the nest is pretty skimpy looking). This morning, I saw one hovering over the lake looking for food while one was perched on the nest platform. Another one was noisily flying over the parking lot at LES. Yay, spring!

Both Osprey in nest. Male left and took off, returning within five minutes with a stick. Took off again. Female arranging sticks in nest.

One has arrived! I haven't been able to get a close enough look, though, to establish the age nor gender. Maybe another sharp-eyed citizen scientist can.

Spring seems to be springing and my class is anxiously awaiting some osprey activity!
