||Yes, our cam technician suggested it might just be passing through, but I was still excited to see it. It means more could be in the area.
Some folks in the DC region have told me they have ospreys back and some of them are already rebuilding their nests.

||There's one on the platform right now.
||03/19/10 09:47 am
||Hey you're right Mel, it's still there.
||03/19/10 09:52 am
||Is this a new platform? It doesn't look as though there has been a nest in it previously. Will they build a new one from scratch here or did something happen to a previous one? Sorry if I should know this but I haven't been a regular viewer over there

||No Osprey at the nest box right now...'gone fishing' !
||03/19/10 12:29 pm
||Oh, that nest gets pretty well cleared out over the winter, no doubt just as the returning ospreys would like it, since they like to build their own nest.

||Lisa mentioned earlier that not only did they reposition the cam but I'm pretty sure she said they actually moved the whole platform a few feet, pole and all.
||03/19/10 02:12 pm
||Yes, we moved the pole and platform a bit closer to our access road. I doubt the ospreys will notice much, since it's essentially the same view and they're not much closer to the woods where the eagles hang out.
I thought our cam technician was going to put in a new platform box (new wood), but they said the wood looked fine, so the nest box is the same.
