Workers Remove Ospreys' Nest, Birds Rebuild

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A pair of ospreys whose nest had been removed by state transportation workers because it was blocking a traffic camera rebuilt the nest, only to have it removed again.

The back-and-forth between the migratory birds and the Maryland Transportation Authority began Friday when the state agency tried to move the nest on a pole that holds a traffic camera on the Bay Bridge.

Agency spokesman John Sales said officials got permission to move the nest from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The nest did not contain eggs or young birds.

The transportation agency said workers tried to move the nest, but it fell apart.

Sales said Monday workers found that the birds had built a new nest on the same spot. Workers again removed it.
