Eagle project for ospreys

Norwich — Kyle Heard, 17, of Boy Scout Troop 4 of Norwich, was working with Norwich Public Utilities linemen Wednesday to install an osprey nest on a 35-foot-tall pole off Route 32 in the area of Norwich Harbor.

The osprey nest is Heard's Eagle Scout project that he built with the help of members of his troop with materials donated by Lowe's and Norwich Lumber. NPU's help installing the pole was a free service. Before installation, Heard had to have approval from the Norwich Harbor Management Commission and state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and permission of the owner of the land where the nest was placed.
