Osprey builds nest on top of construction crane

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A towering crane is now home, sweet home for a bird in Utica, Indiana.

The bird built its nest high atop the construction crane. Wildlife officials came to check out the scene and they say the bird, an Osprey," is a close relative of the American Eagle.

Crane rental company Clark Nickles, Inc. owns the bird's new home. A spokesman for the company says there are no plans to disturb the nest.

The Osprey made its nest on top of the crane about five weeks ago.

The owners of the company say they've been told Ospreys aren't usually seen in Kentuckiana.
