Ospreys find a home in the sky

This pair of osprey has worked to construct their nest in a unconventional site, a billboard just west of Swansboro on N.C. 24. Although it may look like a tangled mass of branches, it is an engineering feat, well constructed and capable of withstanding some hurricane-force winds. Most of the daylight hours, the adult birds are in search of food – successfully, as the fish in the osprey’s talon indicates – to feed their young. (Rulon photo)
