Tommy Aprea - Windsong Osprey Nest

Tip:  If the nest is empty, use the red scroll bar to rewind the stream up to 12 hours

May 5, 2021: Three eggs have been laid!

A note from Dr. Bierregaard on the eagles:
“Interesting. They don’t often take over osprey poles—probably too small for them. They will coopt tree nests, which they can expand. We had a pair of eagles do this on the Vineyard. They built up the Osprey nest a lot and then the Ospreys came home and drove the eagles away, in a David v. Goliath story. The Ospreys successfully bred. They looked tiny in the nest, which sadly blew down this winter.”

Please be advised that nature can be brutal – viewer discretion is advised.

IMPORTANT: Messages from osprey experts

Rob Bierregaard July 1, 2015 at 7:24 am
I haven’t seen the little guy yet this morning, but I would be very surprised if he survived the night. That sure was tough to watch yesterday, but that whole process is as much a part of the essence of being an Osprey as is eating a fish. It’s part of the life of Ospreys that was rarely seen before we started putting cameras in nests. As hard as it is, we should not label the behavior as mean or cruel. Being mean or cruel implies that there is intent to do harm just for harm’s sake. Those young were responding to a set of stimuli (very little food being delivered to the nest and the presence of a very small young) in a way that evolution has hard-wired into them. It helps ensure their survival. Nature is not cruel. It is harsh, unforgiving, and often random (had the little guy been born 1st, he would have been just as aggressive as was his sibling), but not cruel or mean.

Thanks Rob for bringing your knowledge and experience to help us all gain perspective here. We are all saddened by the events that unfolded before our eyes and it’s only natural for all of us to feel and express our emotions appropriately. There have been many issues pertaining to intervention which have been discussed amongst us all. There is no doubt in my mind that the right decision was made, to let nature take it’s course. By the way, that doesn’t equate to heartless, on the contrary, nobody feels worse about this then the apparent decision makers. I say apparent, because when all was said and done, and all the issues were properly weighed, there really weren’t any other options. It was clearly pointed out, by experts, that intervening at this stage could have spooked the whole nest to the point of losing all the young. If the little one was saved, and nursed back to health, what kind of a life would it have had, perhaps caged up in a zoo. I remember when I was younger I saw a golden eagle in captivity, caged behind a wire mesh. I could practically see it’s tears. As far as placing the little one in another nest, such a low probability of success would never have justified the possibility of spooking the nest. There’s a piece of me, however heavy hearted, that believes that perhaps it is better to be born free and die free. We mourn for the little one as we marvel at the wonders of nature.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your query, and you have my admiration for persevering. We know very well how tough your job is, including dealing with an anxious public.

Our policy with our Bird Cams project is essentially “just say no” to pleas for interference. The behavior you are witnessing – while seemingly cruel and heartless to us – is natural for many kinds of birds, especially those that feed on variable, unpredictable food supplies. The little nestling does have a chance to survive, but if it does not then that result was “meant to be” by the nature of Osprey breeding strategy. The wonderful things about these nest cameras also sometimes yield the difficult things for us to watch. As you might know, we actually post a “siblicide alert” on some of our cams where we suspect the possibility exists.

I’m copying your note to Charles Eldermire, project leader for our Bird Cams. He may have some additional comments, and he would be the one to ask if we might be able to use your stored files for biological analysis.

Best wishes, and good luck,

John W. Fitzpatrick

Director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology

In addition, Charles Eldermire, Bird Cams Project Leader, Cornell Lab of Ornithology Writes:

It’s also important to acknowledge that intervening can also cause problems of its own—depending on the ages of the birds in the nest, disturbing them can trigger an early fledge. We have restricted the scenarios in which we would even consider intervening to injuries or dangers that are explicitly human-derived. For example, 3 or 4 years ago we were alerted by viewers that one of the osprey chicks at the Hellgate Osprey nest was entangled in monofilament line. We consulted with our partners there (wildlife biologists, raptor researchers, raptor rehabbers) to determine if the monofilament was an issue, and if intervening was both likely to solve the issue AND not have bad effects on the other nestlings. In the end, a quick trip to the nest was scheduled via a bucket truck, the monofilament was removed, and the nestlings all eventually fledged. In that case, all of the permits were already in hand to be studying the ospreys, and we had already discussed how to approach issues in the nest.

Good luck to the young one—hope it all turns out well.

Paul,

I’ve been to your site—great cam! And I noticed the runt in the nest. This is just normal Osprey reproduction. It happens all the time and you should not intervene. It’s tough to watch, but it’s how nature works. Ospreys almost always lay 3 eggs and on average fledge between 1 and 1.5 young each year. They stagger the hatch so there is a spread of ages in the young. That way, if food is short, the first-hatched (and therefore largest) will get enough food to survive while the smaller nest mates do not. If all three young were the same size and there was only enough food for 1 young, none of the young would get enough food and they would all die. If there’s lots of food, the smallest will eventually get fed and can survive. These nest cams can show some gut-wrenching scenes. The most infamous perhaps was one of the very first Osprey cams (on Long Island somewhere), where the smallest young died. One of the adults carried it out of the nest and after several minutes flew back into the nest and fed it to the other young. Waste-not-want-not at its goriest. At Hog Island up in Maine just last week a Bald Eagle came in and took the young out of the nest. Last year at another nest, cameras documented a Great-horned Owl taking young Ospreys out of a nest in NJ or MD. All of these things have been going on for millions of years and Ospreys are doing fine.

              Highly unlikely. George did the best he could as far as brooding goes, but Lucy just did not get it.

          Irene…. I don’t know if you’ve watched these already but next to the live video are several clips of happenings this year. Near the top is a section of Highlights with features from previous years, including a rescue . And the heading About has the history of when and why the nest was installed. All interesting.
          But this is not like Facebook where posts are immediate. Sometimes posting is slightly delayed, as are answers. Just the nature of the system. Hope you enjoy your time here. Not the best year for us.

          Netting a pond can be dangerous to the osprey. I hope they do it properly, so the birds can see it. Maybe another deterrent can be used.

      Checked in to Oyster Bay nest just in time for dinner.
      Shorty was wedged between the older sibs and getting squeezed out…… so the cutie waddled around and positioned herself where she could make grabs for Mom’s beak. They are all eating well.
      Dad stopped in to see how dinner service was progressing…

        Shorty looks like she’s learned the tricks of survival as the 3rd sib. She was clever in her positioning, put herself in line but out of the way and hung in after the others slowed down. As long as the food supply is there, she should do great!

      We had the osprey-go-round with a revolving series of bouncing birds… I recognized Lucy once…. and George would pause for a moment of calm or nestoration…

        George stops with a big fluke…. still flippin’

          I think this is Lucy but George is very stand-offish when he comes…. and goes… with his fish. The rain passing through, figging the lens, is not helping i.d.

            George finally turned over the fish…. then all heck broke out…..
            Someone chased them both out of the nest and there was a free for all going on.!! There were at least 3 birds …. one with a fish… then one with a stick… and one with an attitude…. all in and out and flying over the bay.
            I gave up.

            • CarolV June 12, 2021 at 10:56 am

              Got this sequence that I think shows that was NOT Lucy who got the fish…. In short order we had George………… fem with fish ……………… Lucy with attitude….

              LOL….it was totally interesting.

        George had quite a job today for sure. Specially after Lucy decided to come home. I actually can`t wait for tomorrow. He is a fantastic bird!

      George tossed aside the last remnant of that fish to start cleaning his beak…..

      And there she is again! Landed then flew out over him…..
      And back to beak cleaning…. there was a tiny piece of fish… wonder if he feels it

        You’re gorgeous, George! Even if your nose is dripping….

        He surveyed his domain quietly before flying out just after 8:30

          Reminds me of a high school pic….when you can pick the background
          One day he may look back and regret the hairdo and drippy nose! 🤪

      George had a quiet afternoon…. he did his watching
      Moved sticks
      Sharpened his beak…..

      • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 7:28 pm - Reply

        George got another stick
        Must have liked the greenery that Lucy brought, so he got more
        Heard someone calling and he flew out…

          This someone just bounced through….. maybe because they saw George coming back…..

            George sat upstairs for a long time. Calling and challenging.
            Wonder if he’ll be home for dinner…………………..

            Another cool night, in high 50s. Today was a pleasure! Low 70s and sunny. Maybe in the mid 60s tomorrow…… no more excuses to avoid mowing the lawn….. hmmmm

            • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 8:00 pm

              And at 19:24, while I was busy talking about him, he slid home. Nice fish…..
              Someone landed on the perch but never came down. George did his wing waggles in acknowledgement…….
              After about 15 mins., he started to eat. He’s plowing thru it….. If Lucy shows up looking for shares, she’ll be SOL….

      Interesting….. caught a reflection on George’s eye….. I think

      George is on a roll today! Another fish @12:15…..
      While he was here, George decided to move that big stick from its nice spot on the far side of the nest. He flipped it up over his shoulder, got it stuck in his wings and shrugged it off in our favorite spot…..

        And the stick wins this round!

      Oyster Bay….. Eating high end…. goldfish!
      ………………… I think I remember seeing this fish here before but I don’t remember what they were. I hope it’s not someone’s koi pet! Can anyone identify? No luck yet goggling…

        And their chicks are looking fat and sassy…

          Chubby happy babies
          The cursed plastic…… the male almost brought a large partially inflated balloon but it fell off as he entered nest.

        Carol, that looks like a goldfish, likely from someone’s pond.

        • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 7:43 pm - Reply

          I thought so too. Was just hoping for an alternative to someone’s expensive lawn décor (possibly pet) disappearing ……

      • Isabella June 12, 2021 at 1:52 am - Reply

        Definitely looks like koi
        Hope the owners don’t watch the nest!

      @6:49…. And Lucy benefits from George going fishing again……………… He had his share but there was plenty left for her…

      • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 9:32 am - Reply

        So back to nestoration…. George is refurnishing the entire house!
        And Lucy brings a thank you present of seaweed…….
        George brings one of his multi-branches and gets temporarily stuck inside….

        • Isabella June 12, 2021 at 1:55 am - Reply

          Another round for the stick!

      Another Friday, another game….. nothing simple here anymore.
      George came in, already guarding….. didn’t rally notice he had a fish till he moved across the nest…..

      • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 8:15 am - Reply

        And then, not one but 2 birds come by…. one on the nest, one flying over….
        The one in the nest leaves….
        And someone comes in behind him again……………………………………………. time to go…

        • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 9:10 am - Reply

          George was multi-tasking….. carrying his leftovers and a fish….
          But shortly after, when Lucy came for breakfish, nada….
          both took off.

            Onward to stick collection…. George is in building mode…

            • CarolV June 11, 2021 at 9:16 am

              That last stick must be upright just out of view….. George tried to put it in place but I think the stick escaped over the side.

      George did not want to share

      • Isabella June 11, 2021 at 5:26 am - Reply

        Came right back with fish stick….and off

          Think he was playing keep away with the fish
