A camera has been installed to watch over a nest discovered on a Fortis BC power pole.
If there were any adjustments to be made, Fortis BC power line technicians would be required to ensure they were done safely – creating an inconvenience for everyone involved.
It wasn’t long before a solution was proposed – mount a camera on a separate pole near the nest for optimum viewing and convenience.
The osprey has sharp spines on the soles of their feet that enable them to grasp their prey.
The Town of Osoyoos would like to take this opportunity to thank Fortis BC for the cheque received in the amount of ,200 to make this project a reality.
