I don't know if she spotted a weakness in the nest or whether she has the drive to just keep making it larger and deeper.

Nice behavioral series. They certainly build robust nests. I've seen several that are so old that they've been moss covered long enough for small trees to be growing on top of them.

Thanks Louie and Dan. There was a large osprey nest, perhaps 5 feet deep, that fell off the trees a month ago. By the next day the adults were building a new one in the same spot. It is pretty big now.
