Help keep birds safe on power poles
All over Chesapeake Country, people are welcoming returning osprey. After traveling 1,800 to 4,600 miles, they’re ready to settle into just the right nest. Most return to an earlier nesting spot, but two-year-olds returning on their first northward migration have to go house-hunting.
Like channel markers, utility poles are favorite nesting spots, but they are not good choices since nests on power poles can both endanger the birds and cause power outages.
