Letter: Other ways to move ospreys from nest

This is regarding the Ospreys eviction from power line.

In Longmont, Colo., they had two separate problems with the ospreys nesting in places that could cause problems.

The solution they found was to install a similar type of pole away from the original nesting site.  In the case of the Boulder County Fair pole, it had to be moved twice to find the correct place.  The one in the city had the birds building on the emergency siren.  They did all this moving after the nesting season when they then moved the entire nest to the new pole.,

When the birds returned to both places they liked their new address.

All this was done keeping in mind what was best for the birds as well as for the humans.

We don’t live on this planet just for our own convenience.
