Robyn, Thanks for the additional info. The March 5 arrival date in 2016 was a fluke. Although their arrival dates are getting a day or two earlier each year, Feb 22 is a full three weeks ahead of when I expect them.
I didn't see any Ospreys in the Lansing area earlier and will continue to check daily. Please let me know if you have any Osprey sightings. Hello to Paul. Many thanks! Eyes to the sky!
