Osprey Chick Fledges In Savannah, Georgia! – June 11, 2018

After spending 57 days in the nest, the osprey chick finally took its first flight this morning at 7:36 AM! Watch the chick lift off and make a confident flight around the nest site before returning. Minutes later the chick takes off again, makes a swooping flight circling the nest, and returns to the cam perch.

Now that the chick has fledged, the adults will continue to supplement the chick as it hones its flying skills and learns to fish. The chick may stay in or near the nest for multiple weeks as it learns to become independent and self-sufficient.

Thanks to all of our viewers who learned along with us while watching a bobble-headed hatchling grow into a high-flying juvenile bird! Diving as deep as 3 feet for shallow-swimming prey, adult ospreys usually weigh 3–4 pounds, and they can carry prey up to 50 percent of their own weight. Ospreys can live up to 25 years, and they typically lay 1–4 eggs in a clutch.

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.
