Now Playing: sighted on our travels
Topic: Field Trip
On one of our drives south a couple of weeks ago we noted a HUGE nest of twigs and branches set atop a platform over a utility pole. We inquired of the ferry captain (Buena Vista Ferry) and he told us it was the nest of Osprey.
Sure enough, after crossing we parked the car and could see birds in the nest. This photo is taken with the extreme zoom on the camera, as it is a very tall pole!
The nest itself has got to be 3.5 feet across, at least.
