Pat Fisher is concerned about ospreys. Actually, she cares about all large birds, but this year ospreys have her very concerned.
Baby ospreys are disappearing from their nests.

That’s what we were doing recently when I tagged along with Fisher and her crew and two guys from We Energies with a bucket truck.
Ospreys are bigger than a crow, smaller than an eagle. They are mostly white underneath but the tops of their wings are brown. A substantial brown stripe swooshes across each eye. To identify them in the air, look for wings that are slightly arched.
