No, but we put them on "other poles and towers" every day in Florida to give
them a place to go other than our towers.
Especially Osprey.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Hawk's nest platform

A pair of red-shouldered hawks have constructed and are sitting a nest 
in a pine tree in the front yard of house down the street from me.

They are very likely the same pair that damaged my C3E 20m 
reflector--one or both perched on the element on one side or the other 
of the boom breaking the element-boom rivets.

Since they regularly use my mast and less often my C3E to perch, I got 
to thinking that if they nested on the tower top, maybe they would do 
their perching elsewhere other than the C3E.

Has anyone ever put up a platform suitable for nest-building 
(low-walled, holed for drainage, etc.) on the top of their mast?
