First observation of pair at nest. Possible that they could have arrived earlier. Copulation and prey exchange observed. 3rd Osprey loitering in immediate vicinity.

At 1705 this afternoon, observed 1 OSPR on nest. Standing, not incubating. 40 minute observation of this lone bird standing on nest, intermittently calling. Is this an un-mated male trying to attract a mate? Unknown if this is an active nest as no pair observed.

This nest was first discovered during winter of 2019-2020. Not previously observed and it is unknown if this nest was active in prior years. This nest was checked by Russ S. on 04/04/20 and again on 04/08/20 with no OSPRs observed. Today there were 2 OSPRs circling over nest, with one bird landing briefly on nest, then both circling higher and away to the south.
