Although this may seem like a strange phenomenon, the osprey nests atop the new Florida theme park coaster have caused quite the buzz on social media.

There is even a newly released “Osprey on VelociCoaster” t-shirt and sweatshirt line. Bioreconstruct shared this post from How Bowers:

With the blessing of (and insistence by) @bioreconstruct, I am proud to present this design inspired by his amazing photography of the ospreys that build nests at the top of the #Velocicoaster tracks at #JurassicPark in #IslandsofAdventure.
