Osprey building a nest (trying)
Two osprey were trying to build a nest on the narrow cross members of this pole. Most of the branches they brought fell to the ground as evidenced by the pile of branches that lay near the base of the pole. I believe the town placed cones on top of the utility poles to discourage building nests. I felt sorry for them as they seemed to be working continuously in vain.
