Nest #547

Nest Location Description: About three years ago I observed the nest being torn apart by tower workers. Then four uprights were placed atop tower. I guess it was a platform of some sort. The following season the nest was rebuilt.

I saw one osprey yesterday, captured a picture today. It doesn't look like any nest building activity.

Last year's nest was torn down in the Fall and the upper portion of the tower was expanded. I saw that a bird was there so stopped to take a picture (2/21/2013). It was a bald eagle! No osprey have been seen at this tower yet although I've seen two in other parts of town this past week.
