The first two Ospreys seen on Cayuga Lake were reported today in the afternoon, one around the Cass Park Rink and one just north of Salt Point in Lansing. (Dave, do you have earlier dates?) I drove up to the end of the Cayuga Lake to look around as the Ospreys nesting on Osprey Alley ( Rts. 5/10 as it passes through Montezuma NWR property) usually return first, but none were on their nests and none were in the Osprey nest along Rt. 90 heading south.
Keep your eyes to the sky and please report Osprey sitings in their nests. Many thanks!
