Tree by canal. Nest is very close to UD-2 nest platform by the monument. I have observed osprey in the tree all season and thought they were perched there from other nests. Some foliage has dropped and I clearly see the nest now. One osprey is often perched there. No idea if any hatchlings this year.

This appears to be a first year nest located straddled across the cross arms of a power pole that also has two transformers attached. The power pole is directly below the dam creating Weber Reservoir, and only a few feet north of the Walker River as it leaves the reservoir. This is on the Walker River Paiute Reservation.
