Enmax to build nesting platform for ospreys

If you have travelled east on Hwy 595 toward Delburne in the last three years, you would have had the honour of seeing nature at her best. We have had the privilege of watching two generations of ospreys nesting, hunting and teaching their young to do the same along the highway.

The third generation has returned and has been completely compromised. With sadness, I have watched this pair try four or five times to build a nest preparing for their young, and the owners of the power poles, have felt that it is necessary now to discourage this behaviour. This pair has come back to these poles several times to try again, and again they are thwarted; the nest is removed.

As the birds are instinctive, they are going to come back to the same hunting/breeding ground. I have contacted Enmax to see if they would assist in building a nesting platform for this pair. They have agreed. So a big thank you to Enmax.
