Thank you Michelle!!!!

I am not surprised. I suggested to my contact that they contact Dr. Greene - Montana U. Hellgate Osprey - re: how he determined and managed the building of a University building right next to the Osprey nest. But, they - EnMax ignored it and went right ahead with moving the pole. They could have left the pole and nest box and installed an entire new pole and covered both bases (probably at less cost than moving the exisiting one). I don't think EnMax really wants to be bothered with the cam etc. It was Brian Keating when he was with the Zoo who instigated it and the Zoo employees managed the camera - zoomed about etc. EnMax will not do one thing with the zoom etc. Focus it - don't touch it - and forget it is their policy.

It is very frustrating and depressing.

Again, Thank You! for visiting the site and the photos.

Here is the post that I put on the Calgary Zoo Facebook page and their response.
It won't change the outcome but at least it's a bit of a comfort to know the Zoo and Enmax are keeping watch on what is happening.
I wish Enmax would move the nest back to where it was. It can't be that hard to do.

April 14th - Visited the new location today. Both Osprey are extremely busy rebuilding the nest. The new location beside the busy pathway does not seem to phase them in the least. They have trees all around to perch on. Nice to watch them along the river edge for branches etc. The river is terribly low right now sadly.
Here are a few pics, several headshots which I hope will help all you experts decide if this is Super Mom and Dad.
I first checked out the original location and there was no sign of any Osprey there.
