Hi Candace, There’s an osprey nest, at least there was last summer, across the lake from the one you are talking about but it’s on private property. It is just south of Taughannock st Park, and just south of a home my neighbors have. It is by no means the tallest tree, though, as the lake shore cliff rises above it. They were feeding young when we were there last August. Lots of ospreys around these days, so good to see.
