Ospreys, also know as fish hawks, will nest in any location where there is water which provides it with an adequate supply of food.
Their nests are made of sticks and lined with bark as well as sod, grasses vines, etc. The nest starts out being bowl shaped to corral the youngsters, but as they grow, the nest flattens out.
The nests can reach diameter of about 5 feet and can be anywhere from 2-6 feet deep. Overall, the nests weigh over several hundred pounds.
