Like eagles, ospreys maintain the same nests from year to year, building and repairing them with large sticks. Unlike eagles, they rarely seek privacy, so you’re more likely to witness the construction of their nests and observe their daily routines.
Chattanooga weather can be tricky at times! Our policy is we go rain or shine. In the case of severe weather, please check-in 1 hour before the trip. We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule trips/tours.
