Summary

Data are contained in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that describes geographic locations (i.e., latitude and longitude coordinates) of thirty-eight (38) osprey nests occupied in 2009 by pairs of breeding adults located within a 1-mile buffer of a 65-mile segment of the Spokane River from the Washington-Idaho border to Little Falls Dam and eight (8) occupied osprey nests at three different lakes located 15-35 miles south of Spokane, WA. The data also identify each nest where a sample egg was collected for polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) and selected herbicide analyses (contaminant residue analyses).
