Five young ospreys born in Dutch national park


This is a Hungarian osprey video.

Translated from Dutch Vroege Vogels radio:

Friday June 16, 2017

At the nests of the two osprey couples (Pandion haliaetus) in the Biesbosch national park of the State Forestry Department, together five young birds have hatched. At the nest of the new couple on the high-voltage mast, three chicks have hatched; and two young birds of prey are growing up in the tree nest. …

Day after day, the birds are catching successfully big roach and bream fish.

All Three Osprey Chicks Perk Up For Monday Morning Fish – June 12, 2017

This Osprey nest is at the mouth of the spectacular Hellgate Canyon at the edge of Missoula, Montana. It’s in a very busy location, right outside the Riverside Health Care Center and next to busy parking lots, a construction site, a busy highway, and a railroad. However, it’s also an ideal location in many ways, since these Ospreys have riverfront property only about 50 feet from the Clark Fork River. Being so close to people does not bother them, and hundreds of people enjoy watching them every day.

The female Osprey at this nest is called Iris because she has very distinctive spots on her iris, especially in her left eye.

The female Osprey at this nest is called Iris because she has very distinctive spots on her iris, especially in her left eye. These iris patterns serve as individual barcodes and allow us to identify her.

Osprey research in the USA


This 8 June 2015 video from the USA is called Live Chat with Osprey Expert Dr. Paul Spitzer.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

In the 1960s, Ospreys were one of the species hardest hit by DDT. At the time, birding legend Roger Tory Peterson urged a young Paul Spitzer to study the connection. Working in a Connecticut salt marsh he calls his “Osprey garden,” Spitzer has spent five decades learning about the ecological needs of these delightful—and thankfully, common again—raptors.

Ospreys feed their chick, video

Female Osprey Feeds Chick on Savannah Cam – May 8, 2017

Watch the female Osprey feed her chick by tearing small pieces from a fish that the male delivers to the nest.

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.

Osprey egg hatches in Georgia, USA

Egg #1 Hatches in Savannah!!! – May 5, 2017

The first Osprey egg has hatched in Savannah, Georgia! This young chick is right on time; it hatched on day 39—the average incubation period for Ospreys. If all goes well, the rest of the clutch should hatch over the nest 2–4 days, after which the adults’ sole focus will be to provide their chicks with enough food and warmth for the nest 50–60 days until they are ready to fledge.
