observer reports: Osprey sitting very deep in nest (assuming it was the mother) Could just barely make out the top of her head and one eye. Did not see mate or hear any chicks. Some people there said there was a lot of activity yesterday with them flying in and out of nest and making much noise. Watched for about 10 minutes. It is just a guess that incubation started between April 24 and May7th so it is posted as beginning May 1.

observer reports: Observations: Osprey sitting on outer limb by the nest. Did not observe any chicks, but two owners told me they had seen at least one chick's head. It appeared that Mom was eating something when I first arrived - possibly a fish. Watched for about 15 minutes and for the remainder of the time, she sat preening. Warmish evening. Did not observe any chicks or hear any. Never saw the mate.
