Plan To Attract Eagle Soars

Plan To Attract Eagle Soars

 

eagleOne of the more exciting plans for Salt Point this season is an effort to attract a bald eagle or osprey to nest there.  Town officials identified an unused utility pole in the middle of the nature preserve on which to locate a special platform capable of supporting a large nest.  Lansing Park Superintendent Steve Colt got in touch with NYSEG to make sure the power is turned off, and found an unexpected resource. 

As it turns out NYSEG regional forester for Ithaca and the Fingerlakes Paul Paradine is a Lansing resident who doesn't live far from Myers Park and Salt Point.  Colt says he is enthusiastic about erecting the nesting platform.

"He's a great guy, very much into birding," Colt says.  "We're going to meet with him next week.  I believe he is going to be very supportive of the construction of the actual platform and putting the platform in place."

Colt says that if the pole isn't high enough it may be extended or replaced to give it the height needed to attract a bald eagle or osprey to nest there.  The Town has plans from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology to construct a platform with a mesh floor that will be mounted on the top of the pole.

Bald eagles have been sited at Salt Point, along Salmon creek, and in the Ithaca Inlet.

Pet of the Week

LeeLeeWhile Lee Lee came to the shelter a very fearful dog, she has blossomed with a little help from our behavior team and is starting to come out of her shell. Lee Lee has a lot of terrier energy, so is seeking an active adopter who can provide lots of healthy outlets, including high energy activities. While she didn't know what to do with a toy when she got here, she is quickly developing an addiction to chasing balls around the play yard with brief breaks to splash around in our kiddie pools. Lee Lee is working hard on learning nice manners and would love an adopter who is experienced and committed to providing her with continuing education. Because of her size and energy level, we are looking to place Lee Lee in an adult only home where she will be the only pet.
