One of our current clients is having negotiating difficulties with a wireless carrier because the wireless carrier couldn’t follow through on their equipment modification due to osprey nests on the tower.

Osprey nests are a reality of towers and tower work, and it is illegal to disturb the nests if the nests are active. Usually, nests are only active during spring nesting season, but sometimes from the ground, we can only see the nest, and we cannot tell if the nest is active. If that is the case and it is spring nesting season, climb carefully and quietly up the tower and be prepared to take a photo, hope Momma does not attack your head, and quietly climb back down the tower.
