The live feed that looks into the lives of some local birds is once again online for the summer.
Located just outside of Kelowna, this osprey nest is part of FortisBC’s program that protects the rare birds by discouraging nest building on energized power poles. FortisBC moves the ospreys from live poles to platforms built nearby.
The camera will be streaming until the birds leave in the fall.
Over 40 similar poles and nests have been installed throughout the power companies service territory.
The program protects birds from electrocution and improves electrical safety and reliability. Birds nesting on energized poles can damage the electrical equipment, causing power outages or fire when nest debris falls on power lines.
Ospreys are blamed for a major outage on May 7 in Keremeos.
