Tangled up in technology. That’s exactly what happened to an osprey on the Severn River.
Maryland transportation officials have installed a nesting platform for a persistent osprey who built nests that blocked traffic cameras by the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
When it comes to monitoring traffic, it seems technology is for the birds–at least for a pair of ospreys.
A pair of ospreys that built their nest on a pole holding a Chesapeake Bay Bridge traffic camera will have to find a new home.
Even before the first hatchling appeared, some folks were glued to OspreyCam, a camera feed from a nest platform on the Eastern Shore.
Odds are it’s never been on your dinner plate, but it’s helped get other fish there. Menhaden are near the bottom of the food chain, and it makes them important enough to rescue from overfishing.
Ospreys that built a nest on a construction crane have stopped work on a bridge along Washington’s Anacostia Riverwalk.
