Osprey Nesting

I was sure Osprey were done nesting for the year. This proved me wrong.

Both adults here were coming and going, I did see nesting material being carried too.

I don’t think Osprey raise 2 sets in the same year. However, they might be like Eagles and if the first nesting fails they start again.

The nest has been used for a long time so just a little repair and they are good to go.

  1. Great flight shots! Osprey do not breed a second time in a season, even if the first attempt failed. Maybe there are chicks in the nest you haven’t seen yet, keep watching! They do know to lay low when the parents are flying and if there are any predators in the area. Experienced Osprey will also continue to maintain their nest throughout the season as the extremes do its damage to it. They want that nest to be in great shape when they return next Spring, so they keep at it. 🙂 Sorry for the long comment, after studying them for eight years, I know too much on Osprey, lol.

    1. Not too long at all. Thanks. Since I have watched this nest for a while I’m fairly sure no chicks. Besides, other Osprey nests have fledged. Maybe general repair as you mentioned. This is an old nest and in use for many years. Almost exactly above the rangers tool sheds, nobody bothers them.
