Osprey Pole Installation in Old Mill Pond

A bald eagle flew over the old mill pond last October and got several folks thinking about placing a pole for nesting.
Ken Batten, owner of SOF is a helicopter pilot liked the project and plans to donate his machine and time. The helicopter is a Vietnam-era Huey that he uses for logging.
At approximately 10 am, Ken will be placing the Osprey pole in the mill pond which is a portion of the property donated by Aaron & Marie Jones. Ken is prepared to do multiple drops from 100' in the air if necessary.
Wish us all good weather and a successful landing of the pole!
The pole is donated by Lane Electric Cooperative. Contact Dave D’Avanzo
