The power company has tried to discourage birds from using the tops of its poles by placing large spikes on them. Undaunted, this family of ospreys on southern Manasota Key has somehow worked around this difficulty! Indeed one perk of this arrangement is that the nest is much less likely to blow away in strong winds. Kudos to osprey ingenuity. But the birds have to be careful where they sit !
