I am not aware of any previous Osprey nest records at Cove Lake. This is a
nice find and one that I have been expecting for some time now.

Visiting campers/photographers Val and D. Eric Johnson sent me a short
video this morning of the Ospreys building a nest at Cove Lake State
Park/ Campbell County, TN. Two have been seen consistently at the park
since late March
engaging in courtship behavior.
This is the first recorded report of attempted nesting/ breeding by this
species I know of at this
park in the last 20 years of my birding here several times weekly.
(Chuck Nicholson- You know if there are any past records?)
Good Spring birding all,
