Remember way back in the days of DDT, when osprey were threatened and even endangered in certain areas? Well, they're back!
The state provides these wonderful nesting poles, and a smart osprey nests there (click on the photo for a closer look):
The nesting poles provide the osprey pair with great views of the bay (wouldn't you just love to live in that bayhouse?):
And yet they still try and nest on the Exit 10 sign!
(Due to the lack of beach traffic during our brief encounter with Hannah, we were able to pull over and take this photo!)
