Article from Fermilab Today January 26, 2012:

"Condo for Rent w/ Lake View; Bald Eagle or Osprey preferred tenant" Dave Shemanske, Fermilab/FNA

There is a new addition to the Nepese Marsh in the Fermilab Village, located on the east side of the site. We installed a nesting platform near the marsh, which we hope will be irresistible to a pair of Ospreys, or perhaps Bald Eagles. Dave Spleha, FNA and DuPage Birding Club member, helped to adapt designs for nesting platforms obtained from the Northwest Public Power Association in Seattle WA. The design is relatively simple, utilizing a 4 ft. by 4 ft. wooden platform and a large elevated wooden perch

For the last two years, a pair of Ospreys has successfully nested near the Main Injector accelerator in the southwestern corner of Fermilab. Data suggest that Os-prey fledglings stay within one or two miles of where they were born, so future offspring may find this new site attractive. Bald Eagles are now routinely spotted along Randall Road in Batavia, which is within easy flying distance to the Fermi-lab Village and the newly established accommodations. We hope that some large, feathered tenants will settle in this spring! (photo detail at right). Tom Eggleston of Fermilab’s Housing Depart-ment built the structure entirely from scrap wood and metal, and Thorne Electric Co., Inc. of Carol Stream volunteered the services of a skilled crew and their special truck to install it. Fermilab Roads & Grounds employees were also instrumental in completing this project. Attached to a tall utility pole, the new platform rests at a lofty altitude of approxi-mately thirty-eight feet above ground!
