The article focuses on the implication of the preference of ospreys for manmade structures as their nesting place in the Saint Lawrence River Valley. Power poles, navigation cells and cellular phone towers are among the preferred nesting of 61% of ospreys in northwestern New York since 2001. Also noted are the disadvantages of power poles nesting to ospreys and customers. In an effort to address the work around the behavior of the bird, the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corp. added nesting platforms atop navigation cells in the Saint Lawrence River.
