One Osprey is on nest. The other flew in and landed on nest. We know they are incubating will try to check during the week and go walk on the track and get a better picture.

Checked on nest today if there was a nestling then it has fledged. Most likely same time as the nest on the ball field.

Hot weekend current temp is about 103* This nest is difficult to see into. I thought I saw 1 chick in there, I will try to get a closer view this week end.

Rainy day today still can't tell how many chicks are in there.

This nest is very unique because you can see the Osprey inside sitting but now the nesting material surrounds the inside in circular way. I will check Monday to see if I can see any little ones. I am sure they are there but not sure how many.
