no osprey activity near or on this nest, i suspect there may be great horned owls in the area but cant be certain, just a hunch from the dense woods nearby and lack of human activity

no activity at this new nest site. there is an active tall snag nest closer to the mouth of the creek and 2 unused platforms entering the creek, plus one starter nest in that same area, but more than a few loose ospreys hanging around so not sure whats keeping them from nesting in this general area. maybe next season....
