Update on Ospreys at North End of Long Lake

For several year ospreys have been nesting near the wires on this pole at
the north end of Long Lake.  The nest has been removed for safety reasons
and placed on top of the new nesting platform, ready for the ospreys to
return from migration.  Perhaps you will see the ospreys fishing in our lake
this summer.

Thanks to Park Rapids Cub Scout Pack 58, who constructed the platform, and
Great River Energy, which was granted permission to relocate the nest.
