Nest #5052

Nickname: 2014 New Nest 4
Nest substrate: Osprey Nest Platform
Nest Location Description: This is the only osprey nest platform built that I know of in the main channel of the James River from the City of Richmond to Hopewell. I am pretty sure the pair of osprey that are in this nest used to nest in an old dead tree on the north side of the river that fell in the winter of 2013/2014.

This pair came back in mid March and have been fighting a pair of Canada geese for nesting rights. The geese are on again - off again with the nest and are doing a good job keeping the osprey at bay.
