Previously at the TCAAP WVA, I Saw an Osprey Stick Hunting

Yesterday, I had a brief encounter with an osprey at the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area. This bird did a slow flyby of one of the dead trees. It attempted to break off a branch but was unsuccessful.

It looks like there are more sticks accumulating on the nesting pole on lake Marsden. I sure hope they nest there again but I'm only cautiously optimistic this year. They lost one of their two young just before it fledged last year. The general consensus among local birders is it was killed by a predator.
