Osprey urged to build nests elsewhere before crews demolish Boling Bridge
New homes installed beside green bridge for bird of prey
Scott Bridge Co. workers guide poles onto a barge Friday morning for Jackson EMC to erect in hopes osprey will nest there.
The ospreys who live on Boling Bridge, which connects Hall and Forsyth counties, were given an eviction notice Friday. Ospreys are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the fish-eating bird of prey’s habitats can’t be destroyed. Officials, however, are hopeful the birds will move on their own.
