Location, Location, Location

The osprey that calls a Fresh Market utility pole home has fascinated Westporters since April.

Alert “06880” reader Alan Beasley has waited patiently for the right moment.

The other day he captured the magnificent bird sitting on the nest, swooping off, then returning with a new stick.

It’s a great sight. Just don’t park (or stand) underneath.

    Could the “Susan Griglun” above be the same Susan Hettrick Griglun from Long Lots Junior High from back in the 60s?????

    Those pictures are great. Remember Dan , I told you about this when the nest was first being built. It was nice to see such a good close up. PPP
