A third Osprey showed up about an hour after this photo was taken--I believe it was a male. One of the two on the tower flew right at it, and then they took off in opposite directions. 30 minutes later, the original two (I think!) are back together side by side on the tower. There used to be a nest here, but the coast guard came at the end of last season and cleared it off the platform.
