OSPREY: Nesting platform home to osprey family

Staff Writer

Crooked Lake residents are anxiously awaiting the arrival of young ospreys after a couple began to nest in a platform placed at the lake last year. The parents are named Whitley and Noble, a reference to the two counties Crooked Lake lies in. Noble can be identified by the dark patch atop his head, whereas Whitley has a scattering of dark feathers.
