Harriet is the resident female of this nest. She had two mates last season named Heiko and Hal. Hopefully Hal will return this year. At the end of the 2014 season Ozzie the male at this nest was found dead. Many males tried to win Harriet's favor at the beginning of the 2015 Season. She finally accepted Heiko. She laid an egg on April 21, 2015 but it was non viable and was not Heiko's. Heiko did not return one day and another male eventually named Hal was accepted by Harriet. She laid a second egg on May 2, 2015 but it did not hatch either.

Hal was last seen on August 25, 2015
Harriet was last seen on August 28, 2015

Harriet arrives: ~~ Harriet is back , March 30, 2016

Hal arrives:~~ Hal is back, April 10, 2016

First egg laid: April 19, 8:07 am

Two males: Shortly after the egg is laid, another male arrives and it wasn't clear initially which (if either) was Hal from last year (a third osprey had been seen before that); by the 21st it appeared the contest was over - and though I (JudyB) am not sure who was with Harriet before the 19th, there seems to be agreement that the one who stayed was Hal from last year; as often happens when there are two males around when an egg is laid, the male kicked the egg out of the nest on the 22nd, before the second egg was laid.

Additional eggs laid: April 22; April 25, around 7:51 am

Chicks hatch: #1 chick 5/30/16 at 7:30am (38days) Named Honor; #2 chick first seen at 4:40pm 5/31/16 (36days) Named Glory.
Chicks fledge:
Harriet leaves:
Hal leaves:

No osprey at the ranch yet. Harriet has returned in other years around March 31.
