Osprey like to build nests in the cell towers in the area. I've seen more than one tower with a nest in the upper sections of the structure.
Some of these photos are from spring 2012 and the rest from March 2015 - January 2016.

A different osprey.
I like the view with the 'landing gear' down.
This osprey (or its twin) spent many mornings on this tree branch in the spring months.
It was probably feeding young in a nest in a tower a few streets away from the creek beside which this tree stood.
The one day I took my camera to this spot was quite overcast, but I did manage to see some details of the bird.

This osprey didn't get long to enjoy its lunch as a nearby hawk chased it away.
