March 27th 4:00 PM Osprey Watch Nest #4715
Winds were from the south with some gust about 20 mph. I am a little frustrated as I have yet to find Joachim and Anna feeding around the area. Perhaps I am a bit spoiled that I can see the pair at the VC at work feeding in the pines near the amphitheater just by sitting on my butt and looking out of the window. I did see Joe come into the nest with some mud. No mock mating nor other osprey flying nearby.
Cormorants were rather plentiful today, about 8 of them were on the pilings before I scared them away. I did run across an oddball though. Two horned grebes in winter plumage. Checking the All About Birds site, they are here in the winter (non-breeding). When I have a full day off, I will begin cleaning up the site a bit.
