The Taste of Maine Restaurant in Woolwich

has had an osprey nest on the property for a number of years, and has had a camera on the nest for part of that time with a monitor in the lobby.

Last year the BioDiversity Research Institute began streaming the nest to the web - and that web cam is where I discovered this osprey nest less than 20 miles from my home!

We visited the restaurant on June 27 (great view from the deck, lobster stew!) - and Charlie and I took a few pictures.

Here's what you see when you arrive (all pictures click much bigger):

And this is what the sign on the pole says:

And this is the nest from the parking lot:

But you can get a better view from the stairs on the side of the building - Mom was aware I was watching her, but didn't seem alarmed, and I wasn't as close as it may appear - especially after you click these to full screen!

The chicks were about 4-1/2 weeks old when these pictures were taken.
