Mid-June is a great time to visit the Pend Oreille River in northeastern Washington to see osprey, double-crested cormorant, and bald eagle chicks both in their nests and as they learn to fly. Many osprey nests are back in the trees or on the transmission line poles. If you see owls on top of some of these poles, look again. They're plastic, put there to prevent young ospreys from being electrocuted.
