||Has someone been adding bits to the nest? Marty posted a screen shot on 26th March - I've put it alongside one I took just now for comparison. Marty's on the right and mine on the left in this Pic

||I keep missing the two I saw one evening, but am wondering if the RTH is the reason they are staying away.
Jazzel, where are you when we need your comments?

||Sorry to say I can't tell, but whenever I've looked in recently, it always looked still the same to me. Is there anyone out there at WH, watching?

||I've been wondering the same thing, Anne but it may just be wishful thinking and the weather. Those sticks laying up on the perch don't appear to have moved.

||Not easy to see, but when I enlarge the picture, I see an extra stick laying up to the perch (right hand side of the group) and the big fat stick towards the left of the nest on Marty's pic has moved towards the middle of the nest. I'm sure someone has been adding/moving existing sticks, but maybe it is just an RTH.

||I saw another visitor a few days ago (pics on my Flickr page). They aren't very clear. The small bird had a flash of bright red on the back of its neck. I was thinking maybe a Northern Flicker. Can anyone positively identify? No ospreys unfortunately.

Northern Flicker AKA Yellow Shafted Flicker.

||A pair of ospreys were on the nest 4/2, I believe the residents. An osprey was on the nest yesterday for about 5 min., I'm not sure on the ID. I have videos of both days posted on the BCAW forum.
