Notes: Two adult Bald Eagles perched on a utility pole 500 yds N of nest at -0920 hrs. One BE left perch atop of pole at 0935 hrs and was replaced by a gull. Second BE left pole at 0947 hrs. Human activity so close to nest platform doesn't seem to disturb nesting activity although when someone walks directly under platform Osprey do vocalize briefly.

Nest is on a light pole, but has been active for many years. It is impossible to see inside the nest due to height,but male and female are on the nest. Male providing fish.

All ospreys left nest in late September. At the end of October, the electric company destroyed the nest and put barrier on the top of the pole.
