Osprey Eviction

A lot has been going on since the last log update. The pair of osprey that had been on the nest for most of February has been evicted. Another pair of osprey has taken over the nest. Thought to be Olivia and Ollie at first, their markings indicate otherwise. These osprey have brought more Spanish moss and sticks to the nest forming it into a bowl shape. The female has been seen with her head pointed downwards as if deep in thought and the male continues to brace the structure.
Last year the first egg was laid on the 22nd of March so we are hoping that eggs will be laid in the near future.
