I SPY A NEST
Bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) share habitat and nesting sites with ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) and generally tolerate each other. The Great Horned Owl also utilizes these nests to raise their young. How do you identify their nest?
While osprey often prefer building nests at the
top of dead trees or man-made platforms, eagles
build their nests under the leafy canopy of tall,
living trees. Eagles and osprey are great
fishers with nests close to waterways,
although eagles aren’t tied to the water for food.
