Ospreys are very tolerant of humans and will fish and nest close to populated communities. They often line their nests with a variety of natural and man-made materials. Some of the man-made materials ospreys pick up include plastic bags, paper, rope and fishing line. As a result, osprey young have been found in their nests entangled in fishing line or impaled with fishing hooks. Adults have also been spotted entangled in line. Legs, wings and beaks can become so tangled that the bird will not be able stand, fly or eat. Conservative estimates indicate that 5-10% of nests have fishing line present. Anglers can reduce the injuries or deaths to ospreys and other wildlife simply by properly discarding fishing line and hooks. Practice responsible fishing by retrieving broken lines, lures and hooks and dispose of them in trash containers.
