Hey gang, Thought I would post the 2 emails I received here. One was from an OGF member asking me if I could contact someone to identify a bird they they had seen at Salt Fork State Park. THey CC'd me the answer. For you bird watchers, you might want to take a trip to Salt Fork to check this out : 1st Email Sent to Me: Hello, I have a bird question -- I hope you can answer this or direct it towards the proper place. I visited Salt Fork today and noticed a bird on it's nest atop a wooden pole. This is located on the right side in the water right after you enter the park from 22. My father and I both viewed it with binoculars and believe it might be an osprey. Could you please confirm this or let me know the correct bird species. Response from DNR: Your request for a bird identification has been forwarded to me for response. The bird that you saw on the nest at Salt Fork is an osprey. It is one of two nests on the area. The other one is located on the South side of US 22 to the East of the Park Entrance. If you pass the park entrance and continue East on US 22, you will pass over the lake bridge just before getting to ODNR road 58 look to the right and you will see another nesting structure on a pole with a nest on it. [/color] These osprey nests are the result of the osprey hacking project that was conducted on Salt Fork several years ago. The nest you saw is a new nest this year. We hope that there will be more in the years to come.
