​Osprey Solutions, LLC is a Seattle-based wildlife consulting firm whose mission is to provide a full range of Osprey research and nest management services to industry and government. Building on decades of field research and nest management experience, Jim Kaiser has developed and patented state-of-the-art products to eliminate negative human-wildlife interactions associated with Osprey use of infrastructure for nesting.​

For more than 40 years, Jim conducted research as a federal wildlife biologist (USFWS-Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and USGS Biological Resources Division) and private consultant primarily involving nesting Osprey and wintering bald eagle populations in the Pacific Northwest.


Jim has considerable experience providing assistance to electric utility and cell tower companies seeking to identify and solve raptor-caused outages, raptor electrocutions and tower access issues. Jim is an expert on Osprey nesting behavior and nest management issues. He co-authored Chapter 6 in Edison Electric Institute's manual: "Suggested Practices for Avian Protection on Power Lines: State of the Art in 2006". Jim's biography is one of six worldwide Osprey researchers featured in Alan Poole's recent book: "Ospreys - The Revival of a Global Raptor".
