I found this nest on top of a telephone pole, close to the road, with a white head poking out of it. I parked a few hundred yards away and tried to sneak up, but those eyes saw me and instantly 2 birds were gone. I was able to follow their flight and did get a few shots, but their patience far exceeded mine and I only had a 24-105 lens with me. I discovered they were Osprey and was surprised to learn they nest this far north.

We lived in Vermont for 13 years and had a nest on top of a pole like this a mile from our home.

we have nesting osprey here in Unalakleet, alaska. They 'borrow' the electrical T poles and produce young ones. They leave before the cold sets in .. wonder where they fly to.
