Relocation of an osprey nest is a touchy thing, and probably cannot legally be done if there are eggs/young in the nest.  We had to have a nest relocated from a NOAA ship on Lake Washington a few years ago, involved working with USFWS and had to be done before there were any eggs in the nest.  A new platform was built a short distance away and the relocation has been very successful for all.

Good morning tweeters!While walking, I noticed that two ospreys nested on a light pole at Pine Lake Middle School field over the track where debris is falling and feces may damage the track.  They were recently on a cell phone tower nearby on 228th but their nest was removed.  Do you think it should be relocated? If so, does anyone have an example of a project done similar to this
