1 chick in the nest today, it looks like it has a little bit of growing to do, perhaps about 1 week? will check the snag nest wednesday after the storm passes

one chick vis in nest late this afternoon, adult female also in nest

07/27/2020 by baygirl
only able to see one chick as nest is somewhat obscured by the woods, could be more chicks, the age looks right on for a 8-9-20 fledgling date or thereabouts

06/08/2020 by baygirl
one deep in nest late this afternoon with multiple others soaring over the salt pond area, salt pond is an incredible place to watch osprey

this pair that is on this new snag is more than likely from Pond Acres Snag, see nest #6785. I saw activity at the original pond snag area but snag was taken down by bulkheading company during the winter so i believe the pair found this location, glad to see them incubating

osprey pair flying over the Pond Acres marsh and snag tree area and circling their nest, female landing on nest a few times but mostly they are harassing the nesting osprey nearby!!!!

seeing a new pair at the growing nest, but they are off the nest more than they are on and they are having fun harassing the other 2 pairs at Pond acres. The airways above the salt pond and pond acres are always filled singing osprey, it is a perfect place to observe osprey fishing, ketteling and fussing with one another.
