Interesting. I had thought they had quit bringing material. Nice to know they are still hanging around.

When the adults at the older nest were chasing an eagle away awhile back an osprey reinforcement showed up to help (it appeared to come from the north). I suspect one of the two from the new location maybe young from the 2016 nesting at UBNA. Of course I cannot prove it but the third bird certainly seemed to be helping out with the eagle patrol.
