A 2nd nest located on Main Street, Eastern Passage and on the grounds of the Ultramar Distribution facility - an Eastern Canadian gas and home fuel retailer. As this is private property and the nest is a fair distance in from the road, the best way to observe is with binoculars.

One of Nova Scotia’s newest Provincial Parks, McNabs Island is located at the entrance to Halifax Harbour, and this nest can be found on the beach at Wreck Cove, popular among boaters. It’s neighbour – Lawlor Island – has a remarkable concentration of nesting osprey [Blake Maybank: “Birding Sites of Nova Scotia” (2005), p. 15] … and public access is restricted. Further information, including boat charters to the island, can by found at the Friends of McNabs Island Society website: http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/environment/FOMIS/index.html

Another example of the high level of tolerance of osprey, this nest is located in a busy container pier. Due to security restrictions, access to the nest is limited. The closest and safest viewing area is several hundred yards away … that is, unless one has a boat!

A new-to-me nest in 2013, it is located on the edge of an industrial area. At one point the nest was built on top of an electrical pole … I assume it is another example of Nova Scotia Power’s Relocation Program.

This nest is situated across from a new and very busy retail development park. I initially referred to it as the “Walmart Nest” – some of my osprey friends will recognize that name – as it was one of the first retailers to move into this park.

This nest is 1 of 3 lined up along a stretch of roadway … each roughly a hundred yards apart. As it is located next to a set of railway tracks, shows another example of the high tolerance level that osprey exhibit.
