Rachel and Steve?

Are the ospreys Rachel and Steve? Be the detective!

The Osprey Nest cam is back live for a brand new season, and Dr. Steve Kress of Audubon’s Project Puffin suggests Rachel and Steve are the love birds making it their home! But what do you think?

Do the patterns on the back of their heads match those of the previous season? Are their vocalizations different? What about the color around their eyes? You’re the Citizen Scientist and we want your input!  So gather your photo evidence, details you’ve noticed, and other materials and post them in the comments section of this blog to convince us and each other. There is no wrong way to speculate and all opinions are welcome, so have fun playing osprey detective!
