It looks as though our couple from last year, Bella and Benecio, have returned. Their markings look to match very closely from last year.

Just got my first look at both of them on the nest, and they are really working! What fun to watch.

Actually there are multiple ospreys. I'm trying to figure out who is who at the moment. A little nest competition.

What a delight, on a cold, snowy day, to find the osprey back at the nest. Hooray!

Oh no! What does this mean? Are there two couples or two gents competing for one lady or what????

Hey Carol,

We're not quite sure at this time. It appears it might be two females. I will post a few pictures, hopefully tomorrow, and maybe we all can figure it out.

Just took a look at the nest and it looks like all the work that has been done on it is gone! Did a big wind come through, or is it the undoing of rivalries?

Vivian, we are experiencing high winds today, 35mph. I didn't see any osprey activity causing the sticks and moss to disappear.
