Mary & I trotted over to see the Waite St. bridge Osprey nest, & also saw a Green Heron.  B. Oriole in its nest.  Tree, Barn, & No. Rough-winged Swallows, too, & other usual suspects.

> Comments:     With Mary Porterfield, a short walk to see the osprey nest.
> 4 species
> Green Heron  1     Flying N.W. over Waite St., then west over the peninsula
> Osprey  2     One sitting in nest on platform N. of Waite St. bridge.  Another flew by, without food, & was not welcomed by bird on nest.  (We imagined of course a wife complaining that the husband forgot the groceries again -- but that's just a story.)  When we left, 2nd O. (or another) was atop a tree to S. of Waite, 100-200 yards away.
> Eastern Kingbird  2     Around Waite St. bridge.
> Baltimore Oriole  3     One in nest in elm on N. side of Waite St. bridge.  Other two were on North Lake property, one signing, the other chasing him away a bit.
