Thanks, Frank. Followed 5 different nests in 2013; amazing what one can do while ground-level and the Osprey is on top of a light fixture. The roof of my vehicle was a tripod; base was standing inside the driver-side door, holding on and hoping it all worked!
One of the most interesting things I found out was Univ of MT has live cams -- not sure it they are up yet; watching those, I could see what I was missing from my vantage point.
Plus, the people who run them are fantastic - they wanted to see my POV !
Will miss the Osprey watch this year -- so far, in North Carolina I haven't seen any perches where I am -- still on the look out, though.
Oh, those wings .. 5 to 6ft span --- amazing to see !
