This is the intruder osprey that is interfering with our couple, preventing them from nest building and settling into the 2010 season.
Moments ago our couple began mating. Hopefully the intruder will find a nest of its own and leave our pair in peace.

Hopefully this female will exit soon so that our pair can start the nesting/mating process. For those of you that are interested there are three osprey chicks in the Dunedin, FL nest. Here is the link: http://ospreynest.info/ They look to be doing fine. I can't wait till we have chicks here!!!!
