​OK I just came from checking out the nest. I didn't take a camera and I did see 1 Osprey perched in a tree. It was calling but didn't sound like the calls C3 makes when hungry, it could have been Dad


Thank You Steve!

Hmmm, thank you so much Bev and Steve.

"It's a good day to travel that I know, I know,
why I know I don't know, but that I do, is true.

You might see me back, to get another bite,
but that eventually will just be a respite since....

Travel is in my plans, unbeknownst to myself,
to where, I know, you won't, but I'll be fine.....

I was raised and loved well".

Hello, Bev and all! I scrolled back and found this osprey arriving at 6:43 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11, 2020. The osprey stayed perched on the branch (never came to the nest), did a poo shoot at 7:08 p.m., then flew off at 7:16 p.m.:

FRIDAY MARCH 12, 2021

Hello everyone ... I have news.. I knew this at the end of season last year.. I was in touch with NS Power a few times and was hoping this work be be done when the Osprey's left.. that didn't happen.


CINDY'S SNAPSHOT: Moving day at Russell Lake
Cindy Day ([email protected])
Published: a day ago
Updated: 13 hours ago



This might look like a big pile of sticks, but that is actually an osprey nest. Susan Baldwin was out along Russell Lake on the Freshwater Trail in Dartmouth, N.S. when she captured this scene.

She wrote, "... the osprey nest (the one that the NS Osprey Cam has been viewing for years) was relocated to a new pole location a few hundred meters up the trail. This is to allow for as little disruption as possible for the osprey when they return as there is construction work planned for the trail and pump house, which is beside their former nest location. I am not sure of the location of which nest the webcam will be viewing this year... The photo of the nest in the back of the truck gives an idea of the size of the nest... wow!"

Thanks Agnes for sending this to me :hug:

We will have to wait and see what happens here.. :luck: for a cam on the nest .
