Not a promise, mind you

Stopped down at Jordan Lake yesterday to do a few tests, and just see what was happening.

Results: Tests weren’t promising, and not much. Distant osprey, and an eagle before I had my camera out.

But as I stood in a familiar location, I heard some cheeping and caught a flash of movement, then had to stake out the area for a little bit.

Discovery: The nest is reoccupied.

Does this mean there will be more photos and video? Not sure yet. Once I unloaded the card, I could see enough of the young’uns (I know there’s at least two) to know they’re not far from fledging, so we’ll see I guess.
