The video, released to coincide with bird nesting season in many parts of the United States, includes important information that all tower technicians need to know regarding the federal statutes, state laws and protocols that govern bird nesting on communications towers. The video also includes an interview with Senior Raptor Scientist Dr. Marco Restani, who provides practical expertise and guidance related to scenarios and hazards that tower technicians are confronted with at tower sites with raptor nests and tips for remaining safe when working in these environments.

1. That was cool. Thanks for posting. Our cell phone antennas are on the water tower

I often see turkey vultures, a.k.a. buzzards, roosting up there. I saw some workmen up there and wondered what it was they had to deal with after all those huge roosting birds.
