Osprey on the nest today. doesn't appear to be incubating yet

04/04/2021 by jmac
Three Ospreys flying around the nest but I didn't observe any actually landing on it

07/19/2020 by jmac
no activity on this nest. It has failed

07/08/2020 by jmac
still don't see any activity at this nest. I'll give it one more try before I give up on it.

06/30/2020 by jmac
No sign of any chicks today. The pair was on the transmission tower to the north and didn't seem upset even when I went directly under the nest. In fact they just flew away. Not a good sign.

female continues to incubate

05/13/2020 by jmac
nest has survived more wind storms; incubating female

05/04/2020 by jmac
despite all the wind the last month, this nest persists and has an incubating female. Today is a very windy day but so far so good

04/19/2020 by jmac
Working on the nest today. It's starting to look like an Osprey nest!

04/16/2020 by jmac
The start of a new nest right where the old one was. High winds (50/60mph) probably knocked some down

04/05/2020 by jmac
An Osprey on the tower today but no new nest started yet

03/30/2020 by jmac
The nest is no longer there. I was told that the electric company removed the nest over winter

09/01/2019 by jmac
When I got there the nest was empty. Soon a single Osprey appeared and I could see it was a fledgling. It landed at the nest long enough for me to take a few pictures and confirm it was a fledgling and then left

08/17/2019 by jmac
This late chick is getting larger. Both parents present today while the chick eats

08/10/2019 by jmac
Single chick getting bigger

07/28/2019 by jmac
Still can only see one chick. this is probably a young pair who are not very attentive. Today the chick was alone in the nest unprotected. While I watched the male brought a fish to the nest and left it. The female was flying around, but didn't come to the nest to feed the chick, which is still small. Not a good sign

07/15/2019 by jmac
Can clearly see one chick in the nest

07/07/2019 by jmac
things look good; the male brought a fish and the female was feeding. Hard to tell how many chicks at this point

06/30/2019 by jmac
A newly hatched offspring was visible for the first time today. Both parents in the nest with it.

06/23/2019 by jmac
female sitting on the nest a little higher than in the past. She may have a newly hatched chick

06/16/2019 by jmac
It appears that male was on the side of the nest and the female is still incubating. this is a late nest for sure.

06/02/2019 by jmac
Incubating Osprey on the nest; a second one nearby

05/28/2019 by jmac
Nest reported by Chris Takacs. The nest is occupied and the pair is eaisly upset. Will investigate soon
