The Ospreys Have Returned

The osprey's have returned from their southern vacation to South or Central America. The first osprey appeared on the nest, which is located at our Hilton Head office, Friday afternoon on February 1st.

We were not able to see the osprey's distinctive markings to tell if it was "Olivia" or "Ollie", Palmetto's resident osprey couple from last year. The osprey moved sticks around the nest, tidying up the homestead, then flew off shortly later.

Today we spotted a pair of ospreys, but again we could not definitively identify them, though one did have similar markings of the male.
