OK, I think these are osprey. They seem to love the intracoastal waterway signs for making nests. I have never seen more than one to a nest before.

From Pelican Bay, we sailed out Boca Grande Inlet, and sailed in the Gulf till we got to the Venice Inlet. It was the weekend and the area around the Venice Inlet was one big party. There is a small island just inside the Venice Inlet, and the small power boats are all tied up to it, with their humans cooling off in the shallow water. It looked really fun to the girls but not to us.

We needed to make tracks, so we continued on the ICW and anchored off the back of some beautiful houses in Little Sarasota Bay. Once it was dark and the traffic died down we had the calmest anchorage of the whole 5 month trip. BUT the water was too murky, so we didn't get in. Another lovely evening of grilled dinner and a quiet evening on board.
