Nesting Diaries

nest declared inactive 3/30/18 due to lack of any osprey in the area.

2/20/18 after checking the site several times, there is no evidence of nesting. The monitor spoke with one of the engineers in Bunting Construction, the tower is in their work yard. He said that the last nest was there 3-4 years ago. The nest was located on a third platform, that was on the top flange. The nesting area has been removed, and there has not been any evidence of ospreys. Based on this, we are considering this a non-active site.
