Osprey Nest!

Two Ospreys on the Nest

Today I found an Osprey nest on one of the electric transmission towers that are ubiquitous in central South Dakota. Ospreys were in severe trouble a few years ago, but are now making a slow, steady recovery. This nest is a very hopeful sign. I will monitor the nest every week, and will post again with updates.
