A Phoenix Burning

Hoooome, Home oooon the Polllle…

Would you look at the size of this nest?!!!  Mister and I were taking a little Photo Ride, and I spotted this thing along the Champlain Canal route.  I can only assume it belongs to an osprey, but I’m no expert.

  1. I understand both ospreys and eagles return to their messy nests each year, do a little renovation, and move back in. Sort of like Summer People keeping up the family cottage. If you keep an eye on this one, you’ll eventually see the owners!

    • You know, I never even considered it could be an eagle’s nest…how neat would that be?! 🙂 I will make it a point to drive by there now and then, especially as spring approaches.

    It does look like the osprey nest I saw on the Cape last year.

  3. I’d put money down it’s an Osprey nest. They are more common than Eagles and tend to use power poles as nest. My $0.02 which is all I’d wager with. 🙂
