During our hike last weekend through the Camassia Natural Area near our house, my boys and I stopped to look at this nearby cell phone tower. Why?
To see the Osprey nest! The nest gets used every year, and I imagine that it might be the same pair that returns every year.
We frequently see Ospreys fly over our house. We live between this nest and the Willamette River. Since Ospreys eat fish, this would make some sense.
Later in the year we’ll be able to see young Ospreys poking their heads out of the nest.
