Osprey on "Nest" - Saugus/Revere - Route 107
A few years ago, the electric power company put an "artificial nest" at the very top of a power line pole - safely, well above the electric wires. This year, Osprey have nested here, with lots of twigs/branches, in the large metal/plastic "dish" on the pole at the southbound side, that's adjacent to the Pines River (Saugus/Revere line). That pole is ~1.3 mi. south of the Saugus River drawbridge on the Lynn/Saugus line. Adult now on the nest - apparently, no young yet.
BE CAREFUL here. Traffic moves fast (60+ mph), on what's locally called "the Marsh Road." Also, the shoulders on the road (both s-bound and n-bound) are very narrow. BE CAREFUL!
