SEASONS

This Osprey nest sits in a box high atop the high voltage transmission line on the Buffalo Fork of the Snake River near Moran junction

The Osprey pair builds their nest in late May. The chicks hatch in early June and grow through out the summer . They mature quickly and migrate south with their parents by late August. If you are patient, you can watch the parents coming and going as they hunt for fish. Osprey can dive as deeply as 10 feet underwater to make a catch .and are the best avian fisherman in North America.

TIMES
