Our recent visit to the Connecticut coast was inspired by a report that ospreys had returned to this nest. The nest had disappeared over the winter and about a month ago, this platform was bare. When we visited it this past Thursday, it had two birds standing in it. By the time I crept up to about 30 yards away, one departed and I caught this one just before it departed also.
If things go as planned, we should have eggs and fledglings in due time.
