Osprey Nest Platform
This is a platform installed by the AEP. I watched the nest last year and 2 successfully fledge. It was an awesome nest to watch! I am anxiously awaiting their arrival this year. They arrived Mar. 26, 2011. So far, the only activity at the nest is a Red Tail Hawk has robbed all the sticks!

3/19/2012 I stopped by the nest after work today and was greeted by the male osprey! He was on the tranformer where they originally had a nest. I did notice the platform has some sticks replaced! I captured a picture and will post! :)

3/14/12 Today, an osprey was seen flying around the pond area! The eagles were not bothered by him. He flew around about 10 minutes then headed up north along the Scioto River. He may be a pass-thru on his migration!
