Just to give everyone an idea of where our tower is located on Hilton Head. We have many lagoons, too many to count, for the osprey to fish near our office as well as shallow creeks and major waterways.
Last year our male, Benecio, had no trouble supplying his family with an abundance of fish. If my memory is correct I believe he caught at least eleven flounder in one week.

Googled location again but I guess they didn't record your bldg.

Looks like you are near the Midland Shopping center.

Thank you again! :-)

We're located on Cooperative Way off of Mathews Drive. If you're familiar with Hilton Head, we are behind Port Royal Plaza.

Thanks again :-)

Sad that we couldn't see another family grow up in 2010 but there is always next year :-)))

Thank you soo much for your great osprey cam.

Never been to SC but visiting via the internet is a temporary substitute...esp when I live in Honolulu, HI

Hi
Hope this isn't a repeat. I thought my message was sent earlier but it appears it wasn't.

Thank you for your map and further clarification of your location.

Sad about the nest failure but there is always 2011 :-))
Thank you for the great webcam.

The little google man goes as far as Mathews Drive and Power Alley. If you can get him on that spot, you will get a pretty good view of the area, except that the road construction is now complete. There will be a Shell station on the right. The Palmetto building is a short distance away.

There now is a large hole in the floor of the nest, about in the middle of the viewing area, that goes all the way through. Looks like our couple needs a little help. They bring so much material to the nest, but they don't seem to get it all in order. Maybe the hormones need to kick in, but I guess it is too late for that.

Hi Vivian.
Just checked in. There is definitely an exposed area in the center of the nest.
Lone Osprey is standing guard at the top of the nest and appears to be enjoying the beautiful morning weather.

Two adult ospreys on nest, checking it out.

When the ospreys migrate south, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the oil spill will not be a threat...wishful thinking?!?

It might be wishful thinking, but I'm with you. Let's all wish as hard as possible that the birds/fish/wildlife that are there now can be saved.

Our couple is still working on the nest. The hole in the middle is out of camera range right now, and I wonder if they are making any progress in that area. If it were not for the camera manipulators, we probably would not see the birds today. They (the birds) look so majestic in that corner. Thanks for the view!
