Dairyland Power Birds of Prey
Dairyland Power Ospreys
The Dairyland Power Ospreys are nesting on a platform next to the Dairyland Reservoir near Ladysmith, Wisconsin. The lake is rich in walleye, smallmouth bass, musky, and drum (aka sheepshead). Reservoirs provide ample expanses of shallow, clear water – ideal conditions for hunting by ospreys and bald eagles, who also nest in the area. The birds can be watched from March through migration in early fall.
July 1, 2022: The ospreys laid two eggs and hatched one, but the chick disappeared from the nest on June 29.
