Saw this nest a year ago, saw one bird briefly last month but was unable to identify it. Today, 12/8/12 , midday, saw two fully grown Ospreys sitting on either side of the nest. This nest is on a platform on top of a power pole right on busy US 301 at the entrance to the Home Depot parking lot.

This nest is torn down each year. The Osprey pair come and rebuild every year. The light pole is the kind the use to light up a sports field. Has 4 light going across, the pair have been flying around the last 2 weeks started to put sticks, they are procrastinators. I have watched them the last 5 years. I hope they rebuild will update, also if the build their nest elsewhere nearby.
