Private dock rebuilt (second time) after Hurricane Irma. Pole and platform still need to be straightened.

The nest literally blew away last week with 30 mph winds. But the osprey are back and have rebuilt. Still possibility for eggs.

The pole and platform were constructed in the summer of 2016. It survived Hurricane Matthew but was damaged and pole was tilted. The male osprey persevered and built a nest on the slanted platform. The owner of the dock rebuilt his dock in early March and the pole was straightened and secured on March 10. There are a male and female currently occupying the nest. (Prior to construction of this nest, a family of osprey had a nest in the owner's dock sink for several years.)
