Well, probably not but he was bringing back some home building material to add to his and his mate’s nest. A friend pointed this spot out to me yesterday. This pair has chosen a rather poor location for a nest – right on top of a power pole with lots of wires.
Osprey are infamous for this, not always choosing their homes wisely and unfortunately sometimes with bad outcomes as they or their nest can short out the wires. At best it can cause a power outage, at worst, the birds can perish.
I’ll be hoping these two use great care up there and are successful in raising a family.
