Sitting on the pole that supports utility lines crossing Wharf Creek, a tributary of the Bodkin River and Chesapeake Bay in a suburban neighborhood, this nest has been successful since 2008. The utility company constructed baffles and destroyed the nest in 2017. A new nest platform was build nearby, slightly lower than the utility lines. Ospreys adopted it in 2018.
