And, I hope these guys have a really good reason because....
I spied two workers on top of the cell tower throwing "my" ospreys nest over the side so they could install some new equipment. It just broke my heart. I did call the Fish and Wildlife district office, left a message and never had a response from them.
This photo was taken last year when they were one big happy family!
But, those birds... I wait each spring for them to arrive and watch the daddy go out for food while mommy sits on the nest. I have even seen one of the parents teaching a youngster how to fly. And, now, no nest.
I see the birds come back for short periods of time. I don't know what is going to happen.
Here is the osprey sitting on one of the new posts, looking forlornly at where it's nest once was.
Do any of you have other ideas about how I should have handled this situation? I even thought of driving over to their truck and waiting on them to give them a piece of my mind but thought better of it. There were two burly men and little ole me... guess who would have won that battle!!
