ROCKLEDGE, Fla. (AP) — Some lucky central Florida ospreys are getting a new home after their nesting platform recently caught fire.
The nest caught fire about a month ago when something fell into the electrical equipment lower down on the utility pole.
A concerned resident repeatedly called officials to build a new one. This week, Florida Power and Light workers installed a new metal nesting platform just down the road from the burned one.
Florida Today (http://tinyurl.com/of3axxx) reports the birds were gone when their nest caught fire, but FPL employees said the birds will likely be back in the spring.
