CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — A young osprey that was tangled in twine has died, despite attempts by rescuers to reach its nest along the Willamette River near Corvallis.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports (http://is.gd/mqLssT ) rescuers used a Pacific Power lift truck last week but its 100-foot reach was a few feet short of the nest.
The bird apparently was able to fly from the nest but it could not free itself from the twine. It was found dead across the river, hanging upside down in a tree on Kiger Island.
