Osprey nest camera

FortisBC’s osprey nest management program

As part of FortisBC’s commitment to environmentally-responsible business practices, an Osprey nest management program has been implemented to protect these birds by actively discouraging nest building on energized power poles, and removing them from live poles to pre-constructed nesting platforms installed nearby.

The program protects the birds from electrocution and improves electrical safety and reliability by preventing damage to electrical equipment, power outages and even fire when nest debris falls on the power lines. To date more than 40 poles have been installed throughout the service territory.

Watch the nest activity on Livestream

We'll be streaming live throughout the spring and summer until the birds leave in the fall. Watch for major events and updates by following us on twitter @FortisBC using #FortisBCosprey. Happy birding!
