this pair was needing a safe nesting platform for the past 4 years but I didnt think that the only available location, on a land strip across from the homes, could be safe or allowed because its owned by Natl Guard. But they approached me through Tristate Bird Rescue and De center for the inland Bays and my Team Osprey, all volunteers, went to work and placed a tall platform just about 100 ft from the roof. The ospreys arrived 3-20-20 and quickly fell in love with their new home. Fingers crossed for young this year.
