2007 & 2008

Later, in 2006, PGE added a second pole for the nest. While the Osprey used the nest again in 2007, they were unsuccessful.
In 2008 the Osprey had their first successful nesting. Here is one of the adults with their two 2008 chicks.


In 2009, the Osprey had three chicks. This is a view of the nest from our driveway.
