Retired farmer's contraption aims to attract birds of prey

Email

LYNCHBURG -- As it stands, Arlo Anderson has a very lonely pole towering over the middle of one of his farm fields.

He planted the pole this spring in the hope of attracting a new neighbor -- an eagle or a hawk.

The cedar pole, which served in a previous life as a utility pole, is equipped with a metal stand that Anderson fashioned from an old bed frame to serve as a perch for a raptor's nest.
