Both nest on the lake are now occupied. First nest, as reported a few weeks ago, is much further in respect to being ready. The breeding couple keep adding material. First two Osprey belong to first nest. Mom eating, dad fishing. Second two Osprey belong to second nest. Just flying and scouting. I think they tried to lead me away from the nest.

Wow! And to be an expectant grandpa twice over must be nerve-wracking. Great shots!
