Dallas Osprey Nest

 As far as I know the only Osprey nest in Dallas is located in the old Willamette Mill site and is visible off of South Main Street.  I had spotted an Osprey at the nest the previous two days, so yesterday morning we went to check on the progress. Jeanette is shown above entering our observation on her iPhone.  You can check out the list here.  As you can see in the photo below, the nest is located atop an old power pole. We watched the female preform a breeding display, and then fly off the nest and over to some cottonwood trees and break off a stick, which is the one she has just brought back to the nest in the photo.  I believe this nest is going to be occupied by the Osprey we have been observing along Rickreall Creek since March 12th. We will be keeping track of the progress here at this nest site the rest of the season.
