What Is This Thing?

So you're wondering what it is exactly that I'm showing you. Oh sure, you see lots of grass and some trees in the background. But there is something in the picture above that you may or may not have noticed. Look at that thing in the center of the picture sticking up above the trees.

No, that's not another tree. Of course I know that you can't see it well from here. So what's even the point of this first picture? I included it to give you some perspective of how far that thing is, and to give you a look at the surroundings. I also thought the picture looked a little nicer than the others. And it gives me a little more time to run my mouth.

Here's a little closer look at the thing. You get a much better look now. But you still don't have a clue as to what it might be, do you. Maybe one of you knows. I don't. But I can speculate. So just what is my guess?

Well, I noticed several turkey vultures flying back there beyond the structure. maybe it was something that was built especially for them. Maybe it was made for the turkey vultures to land on. I have no other idea what it could be for. I could be completely wrong.

Here is the best look you're going to get. The question is, if I don't know what it is then why am I showing it to you? Simple. Because it's a mystery. I love a good mystery. Maybe you do too. That's good enough for me. What do you think?

If it's interesting to you then you might want to come back after there are a few comments. Maybe somebody will solve this little mystery for us. Maybe not. That's part of the mystery. We'll never know if we'll find the solution or not. Maybe it'll be fun guessing though. I'll talk to you later.


  1. Definitely a nesting box.Maybe more for a raptor like osprey.

  2. It's looks like a giant cat tree to me! But I would venture that it's a nesting box also.

  3. looks to me like an osprey nesting box, too bad it's empty!!!

    and you have a good eye!!!

  4. the ospreys will love it ... if it's tall enough

  5. well I don't know for sure but my guess would be a nesting box

  6. I believe it is a nesting or feeding platform for some kind of birds. I saw thing like this before in the marshland when I used to live up north.

  7. Yep....I agree with the other's a nesting box. I hope it attracts something good in there. Keep us posted!
