Osprey Nest At Football Stadium Gets New Home

Posted: Updated:

MARION, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan high school that had problems with osprey nesting on its football stadium lights worked with the state and a utility to give the birds a new home.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the nest was removed near the end of August and kept at Marion High School while a shop class built a new home for the birds, which are a common sight in the northern Lower Peninsula community.

On Monday, Consumers Energy dug a 9-foot-deep hole, and the high school students and their teacher, Adam Cole, attached the osprey platform they built to a telephone pole donated by the utility. A Consumers Energy crew then set the 70-foot pole in the ground.

The school is located in Osceola County, about 155 miles northwest of Detroit.
