From the distinct eye markings the female osprey is Bea. We had a male on the nest February 3, but it was not Jasper. The new male did not stay long - about 10 minutes. Last year Jasper arrived February 10 so he could be arriving any time. If Jasper does not return Bea could pair with a new male. We're not counting Jasper out yet as hopefully he is on his way back to Hilton Head.

Bea is very patient! She's waiting for her beau(fort) guy to return. Hope to see the pair together any day now!
