Hanging Out at the Nest

Well, it looks like we may have some activity at the nest for the season. There have been several sightings of a pair on the platform recently and in fact, one is sitting on the perch of the nest as I write!

At this point, it seems as if the birds in the area (there are others attempting nests on another building here at WHOI!) are preparing for next season. It makes us sad to know that we probably won't be seeing youngsters this year but are hoping for the best, no matter what!

Many of you have sent in pictures of the birds and we appreciate it. We'll be posting some examples on here soon.


  1. the nest is getting so big we can hardly see the nest....what are we to do ???

  2. Celebrate the nest...this is about the ospreys..and only the ospreys.
    Jean, smile : - )

    Observe what you can, document and report your will learn, and you will teach.

    I hope that works for's always worked for me.

    If you have questions, I'll do my best to answer, or give you links to answers.

  3. Is there only one egg? Looks like their is only the brown left.
