Checking nests non stop these days since I will have a week or two of not being able to. One nest did blow down in that terrible storm a week ago that toppled so many trees and shut off the power. Very sad, but it happens. It looks like they have begun the rebuilding, tho I did not see the birds when I visited. I am enjoying conversations with other osprey researchers about the extra ospreys that we see visiting the nests and the differences in responses by the residential pair, from nonchalance to aggression. Also recieved an interesting documentation of an eagle killing an osprey chick by dropping it in the water. We have so much to learn from each other, by sharing our observations and thoughts.
