Nest #5208

Nickname: Randolph Rd. NN
Nest substrate: Communication tower
Nest Location Description: This nest is on the communication tower in residential area. One of the resident lives close to the tower notice osprey fledgling in her back yard. We looked at the nest and saw adult osprey flew to the nest. I am wildlife transporter and capture via The Wildlife Center of Virginia, went there to pick up the fledgling. It was very light weight when I captured it. I brought it to Wildbunch Wildlife Refuge in Warsaw, VA. Diana did the evaluation and found out that this bird is very thin due to lack of food and water. It probably fell down from the nest for days. She will nourish this fledgling until it gets healthy again. She will release this bird along with other osprey fledgling in the future. I notice that this nest is not in the Osprey Watch. I will do the best to watch this nest the best I can. Location of this nest I get from Google cam. Picture from Google did not show the nest.
