A favorite nest site is the top of an electric pole. If the pole has double crossbars, Osprey can erect a pretty stable structure. Last fall I was on a bicycle trip with friends along a local river with no thought to birding; I looked off the elevated road to find an Osprey nest in the field below. The road's elevation put me right at eye level to a nest. Usually nests are too high to see into. I made a note in my calendar and went back in early March. There was a lone male Osprey beginning to rebuild the nest with new sticks.
Through March, I returned to see if he had found a mate. He would call "Pee-Pee-Pee-Pee-Pee" with added excitement if the passing bird was another Osprey. He got no takers. By April, I wondered if he lacked charisma and I checked less often. Returning on May 14, I spied a female in the nest. Finally!
Two weeks later, the chicks were considerably larger. And, I could see three. Beautiful!
In the photo above, the male had just brought in a fish and she is inspecting it. (Note the chick just in front of her legs.) She moved it to the right side of the nest. That seems to be her feeding station. Seen below, the male quickly leaves to resume his fishing.
Now it is time to feed the chicks. It seemed to follow a pecking order, with the dominate chicks always getting fed first. The third chick seemed to rarely get much.
