Huntington Beach Ospreys Get a Home Improvement

An SCE crew builds a wooden platform on a power pole so the birds can safely nest.

Chris Epting, a Huntington Beach writer and photographer, likes to visit the area around Sunset Aquatic Marina to look at the wetlands and photograph the birds.

But on one recent visit, he noticed that an osprey nest on a Southern California Edison power pole he had been photographing for some time had disappeared. He wondered if SCE had removed the nest for some reason even though the birds had been nesting there for about two years.
