This is the main section of what we call the ‘Osprey Tree’. They have a nest the size of some motels. It grows bigger every year.
Each year there are two young birds. From what I know they both usually grow and survive. That’s hard out here. Bald Eagle live just down the marsh and they also have a big nest. Eagles and Osprey do fight a lot right here.
Above is an adult also in the tree. One of the pair is close by most of the time.
