It was a high tide with winds coming from the west. Just as I suspected, the osprey are using the old power line post to feed on. There is also a dead pine tree near the entrance to Rt. 33 where I spooked one. Nothing is changing color as far as the marsh grasses are concerned. The trees and blackberry bushes do have leaves coming in. I counted about 15 cormorants on the pilings. From where I stand at the bottom of the nesting platform, the nest doesn’t seem too large. Driving on the bridge, I an only catch a glimpse of it and see that it is of descent size. No eggs yet, I belive.
