Looks like they're stable at the homestead.

Nice pictures.

I'll agree with he beautiful birds thought, I'm already thinking of what I want to do different if I go back.

I was actually surprised at their size. I have a few images taken at a distance. In fact my first BIf shot ever was an Osprey, back in the 80s. But I was so far away Ihad no idea how big they are.

Here's an image showing the MNR breeding platform. There are many of these around Ontario, I know of 3 personally.
This was my "make sure you get something at least, " image. Before I went looking for a closer vantage point. From the parking lot at the life lock.

Sprucing up the nest.
