Since not much is going on with our pair, Bea and Jasper, we thought we would check out other osprey sites:

Over at the Dunedin Nest they have three eggs as of February 23rd and
Blackwater Refuge is expecting their osprey's to return around March 17th.

Hopefully Bea will soon lay eggs and our pair can start raising another brood.

Moderater, have you seen any signs of the first couple that came to the nest this season? I know Bea and Jasper took over the nest, but wonder if the "intruders" might still be around and bothering "our" couple.

The KEEP (Kentucky Environmental Education Projects) nest is now on line and a female osprey showed up Sunday morning. The nest is in great shape from years past so there is not too much work to do there. As far as I know, the male has not arrived yet.

Hey Vivian -

The first couple is still in the area and flying around the tower on occasion. You may notice Bea and/or Jasper looking up and extending their wings in a defensive posture. Hopefully they'll realize they lost the nest and move on to another area...soon.

Thanks for the link to the Kentucky site!!

Hi Vivian
The Keep site is on my osprey watch and they now have live streaming and audio available (limited to 90 seconds per viewer)

Hope B&J start their family soon after the first couple find another nesting location.

Aloha from Hawaii!

According to Ed at KEEP: streaming video and sound will be available to the public once the first egg appears in the nest.

Hi Vivian

I've been checking in on the nest daily...using the live stream/audio

It is very limited viewing time.

If you would like the link...let me know.

Mahalo!

Yes, I would love to have the link to the live streaming for the KEEP nest. Ed responded to my question this morning with the wording I posted. I would really like to see the nest with live streaming, and I'm sure others would too.

Thanks.

Hi Vivian

You are right about what Ed has said about the live streaming not being available until the first egg appears.

If that moss will just stay in place, we might have a bit of a nest bowl there. Hopefully we'll see an egg or two soon.

I'm betting 1st egg will be laid this week.

Hey Carol,

It's possible. Bea has that pensive look about her with her head down more often. Last year she laid the first egg March 25th.
