This may well be an osprey nest rather than an eagle nest. Here are 2 osprey at the nest.

Thanks gigi...but, the verdict is still out (this really does look like an osprey platform)...According to the Smarthouse Integration FB page, there were 2 eagle eggs in 2016..but, no idea if they hatched..

Currently, there is an osprey battle going on...prior to that an eagle was doing nestorations. A 3rd osprey has been attacking the two on the nest...from there, osprey left and eagle has returned...osprey are now attacking the eagle...I'm not sure I can keep up with this..

Pics to follow if I can ever get them sorted out.

Within seconds the osprey left and an eagle flew in.
Now the nest is empty. Time will tell.

Then the osprey appeared...they seemed on alert...I thought it was because of the eagle (could have been) but turned out to be a 3rd osprey.

Image

I think the 3rd osprey was female...who eventually drove off one of the nested osprey..

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This was the 4th attempt to drive off the other osprey....it worked this time.

Leaving just 1

I think the male was left in the nest...but, he didn't stay long...maybe because he saw the eagle coming!! The osprey dive bombed the eagle for about 3 minutes. I'm pretty sure the aggressive osprey was the female that drove the other osprey off the nest...because s/he never turned loose of the grass it was carrying earlier..

Great pictures, SGB! I sent SmartHouse Integration a message requesting info and history of this nest. I included that the osprey are frequent visitors.

Yikes...what incredible pictures. Funny how that 3rd osprey just ducked for cover and face-planted in the nest while the battle was going on. It looks like the Eagle has landed.

This morning the eagle is in the nest. In the first pic, screaming and now has seemed to settle down.
