Mom was last seen in the nest on Saturday night around 8:00, and we haven’t seen the owls since.
However, today (Monday) at noon, a couple of Ospreys showed up and spent about 40 minutes checking out the view. This also is similar to last year, as the following goldie-oldie post shows. To the right are today’s photos as first one, then
another Osprey land and spend some quality time in the nest.
And below, take a look at this post from 54 weeks ago! It’s Deja Vu all over again!
Ospreys getting serious – stand by for Act II ??? originally published April 9, 2015
The two osprey have visited the nest at least a couple of times this morning and between 8:30 and about 9:10 were seen together bringing in new nest material. When the second osprey arrives with a huge load of spanish moss, it gets caught on the end of a new stick that they have apparently added to the nest. Both of this pair seem to think this is a pretty good site. Now we just need to have them start picnicking here. I’m thinking sushi or sashimi would be a great sign!
And for those of you who are unfamiliar with the osprey, here’s some literally unbelievable footage from ARKive.
