Over the past week, we have observed Osprey rebuilding and repairing nests. All nine nests near our home are hosting pairs and it should not be long until egg laying begins.

Map shows Osprey nest sites in our area. (Yellow = nest sites. Green = our home.) Map is interactive.

The following photos were taken at the nest site on Bath Road approximately 2 miles west of Bath.

Tomorrow’s post will feature Snowy Egrets that I photographed today who were feeding near Small Point, Maine.

Happy birding!
