Other birds utilize the platform whether the osprey are present or not.
Classrooms and school groups are encouraged to watch the osprey. In the spring of 2003, this osprey pair began nesting on a light pole at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and returned each year.In 2009, wildlife biologists moved the nest to its current location just east of the Cattail pond for the birds’ safety. Our biologists believe that the local surge in nests may be offspring returning to their previous habitat area.The nest is illuminated at night using an infrared light.
The infrared light is powered using a battery that charges during the day with a solar panel.
Smaller birds can nest in the nest material and are usually ignored by the osprey.
