The nests have to be wide enough to support up to six full-sized birds.
Osprey nests weight an average of 400 pounds and are amended yearly.
No one knows why they collect all the different things that they do for their nest (including trash), other than to make the lining soft and to keep eggs from falling into voids in the stick nest.
They are successful just over half the time on that first dive.
Magpies and blackbirds have been spotted on the platform or camera when the osprey were on the nest.
Smaller birds can nest in the nest material and are usually ignored by the osprey.
There are no markings to indicate which osprey is male and which is female, but the females are generally larger than the males.
They show up around the first of April and complete mating and egg-laying within the first two weeks after both have arrived.
Classrooms and school groups are encouraged to watch the osprey.
