It appears birds of a feather do flock together, especially in the Okanagan.
Residents were treated to two different encounters with birds over the last week.
First, a red tail hawk was released back into the wild, on May 13, after being found in really bad shape about a month ago. Okanagan Eagle Rescue rehabilitated the bird and was able to release the creature near Vernon.
Then on May 16, during a hot Okanagan day, Lake Country resident Tom Skinner spotted two osprey nesting on a converted power pole that allows the birds to build a permeant home.
The two ospreys were seen above the Rail Trail on the east side of Wood Lake between Oyama and Lake Country.
To the south in Kelowna, FortisBC installed a nesting platform for osprey near K.L.O. Road.
You can watch the birds live on FortisBC’s osprey cam 24 hours a day thanks to the company’s osprey management program that has been in place since 2005 and helps to protect these birds.
