I am happy to report that the North Kitsap School District has agreed to delay removal of the osprey nest on the NK High School athletic field until we can install a new nest platform nearby. Kitsap Audubon and the Poulsbo Roatry have agreed to pay for the new nest platform. Although the pair have nested on the stadium light tower for seven years, the school district has a valid concern about health and safety hazards. Falling sticks and feces can fall on passing students. The nest materials near the lights also represent a fire hazard. However, the immediate concern is that ospreys add nest material every year, and the seven-year accumulation of weight threatens to collapse the supporting structure.
