132 Ospreys re-established with help of professor, students

Ospreys, a fish-eating bird of prey, are endangered in Illinois. So Dr. Tih-Fen Ting and UIS students are trying to get them re-established. The birds are being kept at Anderson Lake near Havana, Illinois. As adults, ospreys usually return to nest in the area where they were raised. The hope is that these chicks will do just that.
