Observer Rita K. reports: This nest is high up on a tower, and my view from across the street is angled up under the nest. I can’t see inside the nest. I went over June 24 and again July 7, but didn’t see any ospreys at all perched or flying around the nest. There had been two ospreys on duty a month ago.

observer reports: JUNE 7, 2018 OBSERVATION: TWO OSPREYS FLYING AROUND THE TOWER AT THE LEVEL OF THE NEST. ONE WAS AGITATED AND CHIRPING RAPIDLY. I will try to observe at a different time of the day. I'm sure there are chick(s) in the nest.

observer reports: On April 20, 2018 Joe and I observed one male osprey in the air circling the tower. Then he alighted on the nest's edge. The female poked her head up. She may have been sitting on an egg.
