Raptor Wednesday

Last week there was a report that the Bush Terminal Osprey nest, the first attempt on this nesting platform, was abandoned. After more than two months’ effort. Have to wonder if this platform is just too close to people: on one side, a “wild” area (read: unmaintained by Parks) is regularly trampled through by dog walkers and others (Parks enforces nothing); on the other, a long pier closed for construction but full of equipment, and noise.
One of the two nests at Marine Park looked to be ok this past weekend. No little heads yet, though.
