Sometimes a bird picks a dangerous place to nest.
In Tampa Bay, Florida a male osprey began building a nest to attract a mate but he chose a railroad signal tower as his ideal location. It looked good to him, but it was a big problem for the railroad.
Fortunately volunteers from the Audubon Society of Clearwater Florida had a better idea. Watch the video to see how they worked with CSX to move the osprey’s nest.
Would the osprey accept the new location? You bet! Moving Day was a success. Here he is perched at his new home.
Now all he has to do is unpack the sticks. 😉
Thanks to Bob O’Malley for sending me this happy news.
