Abstract: Of 30 Osprey nests observed on 27 power poles along Arrow Lake in March 1994 and four new nests built early in the breeding season, nesting was attempted in 17, and 27 young in 14 nests were known to reach the stage of standing in the nest; most of these are believed to have fledged. Seven additional nests built later in the season were apparently not used for nesting. A brief account is included of 1995–1997 nesting success.
Key words: Alternate nests, Arrow Lakes, artificial nest-sites, Osprey, Pandion haliaetus
