A pair of ospreys have returned to nest in Lamoine, on a nesting platform that was created by Versant Power to prevent them from nesting near the power lines.

Ospreys generally lay their eggs in May and the chicks hatch in June. They then migrate south in August and September.

On Tuesday, August 18, 2020, the Osprey nest in Lamoine was destroyed after the lines short-circuited in the rain.

The nest was subsequently rebuilt by Versant. In June 2021, there were baby osprey in the nest.

Here's a photo of the nest from April 28, 2021.
