Bald Eagles mate for life, nest in the canopy of large trees near bodies of water, and return to the same nests every year. How far will the Edward L. Rose Conservancy go to bring a pair of these iconic raptors to the property? Sixty feet in the air, to be exact.

Nine Conservancy volunteers, led by Tim Matthews, began installing a raptor nesting platform at High Point Preserve on October 21 after receiving a Rockwell Collins Green Communities grant for the project. Volunteers worked with USFW raptor biologist Craig Hoppie to pick the perfect tree for the platform—a six-story white pine—and completed Cornell Outdoor Education's rigorous tree climbing course to safely scale the massive tree. Once complete, the platform will resemble a natural nesting site for eagles, and hopefully encourage a breeding pair to take up residence at the Preserve during the nesting season this January.

Owego photographer Teri Franzen documented the first phase of construction--check out her video below. The climbers will be back in the canopy this month to finish up the installation, so keep an eye out for updates on the platform in the coming weeks!
