We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It appears ownership of this potential nesting site is still up in the air. The osprey are the most common visitors and they even seem to have hauled some sticks up there. But the eagle keeps showing up and I don't think an osprey, or even two, are going to mess with an eagle.
Interestingly, at least a couple steenking turkey vultures have visited the "nest".
