Nesting time

Along the shores of Lake Champlain are nesting posts places for the fish hawk, the Osprey. While the bird can find places to nest on it’s own, it does have a habit of selecting the cross tees of power lines which are near the lake. Ospreys return each year to the same nest; they add sticks, repairing and growing the nest until the thing is huge and weighty. Power companies try to relocate the nest when practicable,even going so far as to putting up nest poles for the birds. Camel Hump Mountain is in the background.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
