Osprey Platform

Gjoa and I have been talking about it for a while and this summer we finally erected a 45' osprey pole in the hopes of attracting a pair of Osprey.  No takers yet but if you know of a nice pair of osprey looking for a good home to raise their family please send them our way.  No references needed.  The platform is in a quite peaceful location on the NW corner of our vineyard and includes a perch with a beautiful view overlooking Lake Okanagan.

Unlike humans, Osprey breed for life and return to the same nest year after year and sometimes over multiple generations.  Some nests have recorded over 70 yrs of continual use.  We missed the 2017 breeding season but we are keeping our fingers crossed for next spring.  We'll keep you posted...
