Osprey nest atop a utility pole
18.00 x 24.00 (inches)
There is a real symbiosis between osprey and humans. While we have encroached on their natural habitats and nesting sites, we have also built nesting platforms in many areas, which osprey have taken to readily. Some pairs seem to prefer other man-made structures. I have watched the same pair of osprey return year after year to this utility pole, where they carefully augment their nest each season and successfully raise their young, undisturbed by humans but with a little help from their friends.
