British osprey becomes father in Dutch Biesbosch

This video says about itself:

Fishing ospreys; filmed in the fall of 2017 en 2018 in De Biesbosch and south Limburg province. Ospreys can dive at speeds up to 80 kilometres an hour, so making this video was extremely difficult. I had more failures than successful takes. All footage was filmed with a Panasonic GH5 and a Canon ef 500mm. Music licensed via Artlist.

Translated from Staatsbosbeheer in the Netherlands today:

12-JUN-2020 – The number of breeding pairs of ospreys in the Netherlands is increasing rapidly. In the Biesbosch this year no less than three pairs were on eggs. The Biesbosch is currently the only nature reserve in the Netherlands where ospreys breed. It is not yet clear how many young birds hatched in the nature reserve this year.

Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) have been breeding successfully in the Netherlands, in the Biesbosch, since 2016. …

Ranger Thomas van der Es of Staatsbosbeheer explains: “The ospreys have built several nests in the Biesbosch, three of which are now in use. The new third pair already started building several nests in the area last year. After returning from Africa this spring they found out that one nest had been hijacked by a pair of peregrine falcons, so the new osprey couple used the other nest.” Ospreys are known to be very loyal to their nesting location and to enjoy nesting close to other ospreys. That is why there are now no fewer than three breeding pairs in one nature reserve. Two pairs are nesting in a tree, another couple is sitting in a power pylon near the quiet, closed basin of Evides Water Company. At the new nest, a creek is temporarily closed to shipping to give the ospreys quiet.

New couple

Of the new pair, the male is from the United Kingdom, and the female from Germany. The male is the first osprey from the United Kingdom to successfully breed outside his home country. …

It is still unknown how many youngsters there are in total. However, observations this week made it clear that young birds have hatched on all three nests. …

The birds successfully catch large roaches and breams daily here.

Amazing First Look At Savannah Osprey Chick During Clumsy Feeding – April 17, 2020

Check out this amazing look at the Savannah Osprey chick on the morning after hatch. Osprey chicks barely have enough strength to hold their heads up after hatching, but this little one was able to coordinate with the female to receive a few bites of fresh fish for breakfast.

Anhinga Dries Off In Sunny Savannah, Georgia – Jan 15, 2019

The Savannah cam caught this Anhinga, a distinctive waterbird, hanging out to dry below the cam’s vacant nest. When Anhingas aren’t slyly swimming through shallow waters with only their head sticking out, they are easy to spot drying out their waterlogged feathers in sunny areas. Look around the borders of lakes and ponds with forested edges for a sunning bird.

Start your Monday off right with a visit from this sharp-looking Eastern Kingbird to the Hellgate Osprey nest! During the breeding season, these bold flycatchers are fierce defenders of their nesting areas. They are quick to harass bigger birds—like Ospreys, Red-tailed Hawks, or Great Blue Herons—that pass over their territory.

Male Yellow Warblers sing a sweet series of 6–10 whistled notes that accelerate over the course of the roughly 1-second song and often end on a rising note. The tone is so sweet that people often remember it with the mnemonic “sweet sweet sweet I’m so sweet.”

During the Fall of 2014, a pair of Great Horned Owls began frequenting this recently abandoned Bald Eagle nest adjacent to a protected, nutrient-rich salt marsh along the Georgia coast. The nest sits nearly 80′ above one of the six Audubon International Certified golf courses at The Landings, on Skidaway Island, near Savannah, Georgia.

Over the course of 2015 and 2016, a pair of owls successfully fledged four owlets from the site, but they did not return to breed in 2017. Instead, a pair of Ospreys began renovating the nest and committed to breeding in the same site for 2017.
