How exciting! I will be watching every day to see the progress. Looks like there already is material being brought to start a nest. Let's hope for good progress this year. Today was gorgeous on the beach. Too bad I have to leave for Atlanta tomorrow.

This is great!!!!! I thought this a little early but I'm not complaining. Can't wait for the season to begin.
FYI for eagle lovers. Blackwater Refuge eagles have three eggs, and there are actually two eaglets at the Jordan Lake, NC nest and finally Norfolk Botanical Gardens cam just went live on the 18th!! Happy camming to all the raptorholics like me.

Looks like one or two new sticks have been added.

Just watched the bald eagle at the Norfolk Botanical Garden lay her first egg. It was truly awesome. She and hubby are beautiful birds. This has made me even more anxious to see some activity at our osprey nest this year!

Here is the url for those who would like to take a look at the bald eagle family.

Hey Vivian -

Thanks for the link! We're following your lead and looking forward to a lot of activity on our nest this year - no drama, just osprey's raising their chicks.

We haven't noticed any activity other than crows on the nest. Any osprey that takes over the platform will have a lot of work ahead to prepare it for egg laying.
