Nesting osprey on our Belize island

We set up an osprey nest box last season right in front of the kitchen, and this season the resident pair of ospreys have moved in. They have been busy building a big nest and mating, and soon the female will be sitting on her eggs, usually two per season. We have watched this pair of ospreys raise their young every season for many years, so it will be especially interesting to watch every phase of bringing up their chicks from such a close range.
