A couple years ago I had two 40' eagle/osprey nesting platforms installed. The platforms were located next to a river and a creek with plenty of fish for a food source. One platform has since blown down from a strong gale force wind. In the spring and early summer we shoot lots of gophers (Richardson squirrels) in a different area and then put them near the platform for another food source. Problem is...no eagles/ospreys have taken up residence even though there have been several in the immediate area. The magpies are getting so fat they can hardly fly. My question - what would entice eagles or ospreys to use the platform? A friend suggested putting baling twine on the nest platform and letting it dangle off the sides. Your thoughts?
