Osprey Nest


Located on the north side of CSAH 11, the osprey nest is atop a pole (which was erected and the nest transferred from the nearby power pole). Osprey frequently nest on artificial platforms; several are located along the Byway. The osprey, or fish hawk, resembles the eagle but is distinctly smaller and slimmer with much white beneath. The nest is similar to the eagle's with additions made each year. The osprey feed almost entirely on fish, taking their prey at or just below the surface.

The nesting pair successfully raised and fledged two birds in 2011. (Photo: Courtesy of Judd Brink, Birds of the Byway) Check out his website for much more birding info.
