There are many bird species that benefit from man-made nesting structures, including several species that breed in Sheridan County. Some of these birds may have difficulty finding the necessary natural resources or structures needed to safely and successfully raise their young.
Ospreys are one of the frequent summer residents of the Brinton Museum’s Quarter Circle A ranch. Ospreys (sometimes called ospreys) are a species of raptor usually found near water and feed almost exclusively on fish. Ospreys have a flippable outer toe with barbed pads on their feet that help them grab slippery fish from the water.
