Location is What It's All About

In Florida, Ospreys had built a nest on top of a signal light on a drawbridge over a water channel. Obviously the ospreys
were not bothered by the drawbridge constantly going up and down daily and as well as the heavy traffic. I estimate the
height of the signal light was no much more than 20 feet off the ground so the ospreys were also use to people being near
by. Located just above a water channel the ospreys were also close to a good fishing area. Location is What It's All About.

With your comments one can understand why the ospreys built their nest where they did with access to a good fishing. The nests I don't understand are those of geese that lay their eggs and then look after their young from the roofs of highrise buildings. Ospreys can fly but geese are waterbirds and how they ever get their young down to the water is beyond me but they do.

Location, location, ...location. Oh, that's funny !
And with the osprey's head popping up like that, out of the nest,
timing couldn't have been better.
