Osprey will sometimes scout for fish from its nest.
In 20, a female osprey with a metal band around her leg was seen. See the interactive timeline above for specific dates and other significant events.
We reported the band number to the United States Geological Survey Bird Banding Program and received the band report. The camera is an Axis P5534 network camera that can pan, tilt, and zoom.
They are successful just over half the time on that first dive.
Some of the public places you can see them fishing are: Fairgrounds lake, Twin Peaks golf course, Lagerman Reservoir, Izaak Walton Pond, Golden Ponds, and Pella Crossing.
The nest is mainly used for the osprey’s offspring.
