Osprey Nest North West of Timmins

Big sticks and tree top is typical of an 
Osprey Nest

I went to visit this nest this week. It is not being used just yet, but spring is not too far away, I hope. I will have to watch this nest over the next month to see if a bird appears.
This is an Osprey nest, looks different then the nest I saw a couple of weeks ago - the black bear nest.

The tree this bird has chosen is an old jackpine tree. When I walked to the base of the tree I could tell the tree was very dead, and was surprised the tree is standing so strong. I wonder how much longer the tree will stand. The plantation this tree is standing in looks to be 10 to 12 years old.

When I see the bird return I will let you know, maybe I will get to use my video camera???
