Hi Ruth,

One was on the nest, the second was in proximity to it. I'm afraid that I can't provide more details than that as it was a sighting from rt. 7.

There is an adult Osprey sitting on the nest. Another adult chased away an
immature eagle. I uploaded photos to iNaturalist and I will add them to
ebird when I get home.
