Osprey in the nest.

05/14/2013 by Robin
Could be babies in nest.

04/26/2013 by Robin
For the first time today, I could see an osprey head in the nest. I'm sure there are eggs in this nest, too.

04/19/2013 by Robin
Osprey flew in and perched on the bar. Still unable to see if an osprey is in the nest.

04/08/2013 by Robin
Osprey perched on the bar beside nest preening. I don't know if another osprey was in the nest....nest too high.

04/02/2013 by Robin
Saw osprey bring fish or nesting material to the nest. Did get a picture....will post tomorrow.

03/27/2013 by Robin
Saw one osprey at this nest around the weekend of March 10, 2013

07/02/2012 by Robin
This nest is so high that its hard tell if there are any babies in the nest.

05/21/2012 by Robin
Saw one of the osprey from this nest chase another one away today. Nest is to high to see if there are any babies at this time.

05/09/2012 by Robin
Osprey still at the nest. Can not see if babies are in there....too high and far away. Will check again this week

04/22/2012 by Robin
Believe there are eggs. Unable to see if hatched.

03/29/2012 by Robin
So far, doesn't appear to be any eggs yet. Ospreys are busy chasing each other and dive bombing the eagles. Then the eagles chase them.

03/20/2012 by Robin
The Osprey pair came back to their nest on 3/1/12 to find out that an eagle pair took over their nest. The osprey pair built another nest second electrical tower down.
