It's not uncommon for birds to build nests in and around man-made structures. But one kind of bird is taking it to new heights.

An osprey nest was found built on top of a light pole at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.


Other osprey nests around Douglas County have also been sighted, including a nest off the north side of I-94 just east of the Garfield exit on a 150-foot cell tower.
