There appeared to be an osprey still at this nest site. I looked again (traveling south in the express lanes) and one could stop in the zone out of the traffic lanes, with yellow diagonal lines. One would have to anticipate this and plan a stop!

Again, as I passed on the GSP, I noticed multiple osprey at this site. I did not stop so I can't say whether it was an adult pair or an adult with chicks. I did notice this time that there appears to be a possible temporary pull off with yellow diagonal lines, out of the traffic lanes. This is right near the toll plaza. One has a good view of the nest from the toll plaza but if you were to watch regularly and stay at the site for awhile, you would have to explore better viewing posts.

I noticed as I passed on the GSP driving south that there were two adults at this nest. I did not stop so I can't say what is going on, just that the osprey appear to be present at this nest.

There were two osprey at this nest on 4/19/16 at 12:30pm. One bird was perched on the edge of the nest, and the other was perched adjacent to the nest on the tower.

One osprey on the nest, another circling nearby.
