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.

      HELEN- it was last year that 10/02/15 was my last sighting for Verizon Vic. He had a single juvie who was a late bloomer, from fishing for itself to leaving. Also posted that I had seen osprey over Peconic River area as late as 10/5-
      Scanned thru other comments—– 10/2 —we were discussing the strength of plastic in a wicked storm
      ………..TOMMY shared his visit from , presumably, Sandy, as she said good-bye and thank you……..
      ………..We were sharing our empty nest syndrome and possibly forming Osprey Watchers’ Anonymous………..which would be a good T-shirt Logo
      ………..BOB was telling us about his local birds and I kiddingly suggested we have an OWA meeting at HIS place….

The only time I need to sign in is if I want to change my picture or profile for example when Betsy went to add her YouTube channel if she had to sign in so she could edit it but you are not at that point yet Your WordPress account and your email that you use should both have the same email so I don’t think that’s the problem but not sure I could be misunderstanding you. I know it gives you I think two options on if you want to sign in use your WordPress for the Gravatar.

          CarolV: My replies are a little out of order because I started reading the comments from the top of the page down. What do you see after you’ve logged into Gravatar and hover over “My Gravatars” at the top of the page? You should see something like the picture I posted with this comment. You can add an email address but the primary email, once it was put in, can’t be changed. Since it seems like you already uploaded the picture of Mishka, you should see it in “My Gravatars,”click on the picture and then you’ll need to confirm that this is the picture that you want next to your name. If you don’t see a picture in “My Gravars,” you’ll need to upload the picture again. Hope this helps.

      Maybe Brutus is right on her schedule. The Southampton Osprey family have 2 adults and 2 babies still here. When the sound is out in EM,, I can hear them calling and yelling from the tree across from my house. All get their own food – parents and children alike. Last year they left in October.

It could come right up east coast like Hermine did. oh well just saying maybe don’t rush to leave just yet.

But I did want to thank you for reminding me that I’ve wanted to donate but can’t hold a thought for more than 10 seconds!!!!! Just adding this SUGGESTION as a worthy recipient….these are the people who helped with last year’s rescue at our nest and tried to help the ribboned osprey this year. I myself took a turtle there with a big hole in its shell a few years back. They were going to give it a home if they couldn’t repair it. I’m sure any rehab center could use a boost !!!

          Maybe if Paul does any changes he would consider making one so we can view while they are on the perch, that would be really neat and wonderful we can dream.

        I had hoped that a stick perch would happen again this year. I know it’s a random event. If for any reason the nest gets worked on……………maybe a visible perch could be added?

          That’s a great idea. Moving the camera to the right a hair would also be great to see more of the blind spot. I’ve noticed from watching videos from last year that the camera has moved to the left quite a bit.
          This is only a suggestion if someone is already going to be up there for some reason or other. Like I said earlier when CarolV pointed out how high the nest is, I wouldn’t want to go up there!

          “Bre (and anyone else who wants a calendar): I will email a pdf file to you which you can then print out the pages (one for each month). The page size is 11 x 17 (tabloid) so if you don’t have access to a printer that can output pages this size, you can take the file to Staples, OfficeDepot or any copy center near you. This is the easiest way for me to share the calendar without passing on printing and shipping charges.”

          So, after she(?) emails you the pdf file you’ll download it to your computer and then you can print out, or have printed out, the pages. 🙂

          The calendar- if you sent your email to alizarin then once Geo and Brutus Migrate she will put on calendar the date then will email you the calendar. Calendar is just waiting for the last 2, to migrate before she sends out to everyone that requested. You will get it as an attachment file in your email from her once she sends out. You can then save to comp. or whatever device you are using and or print yourself or take to get printed and so on.

        Betsy: I so enjoy your creativity! You should consider maybe writing a book with picture captions for children of all ages, you have a wonderful true insight

      A little less than an hour after Brutus had flown up to the perch (at 11:48 am), s/he was back to the nest …

      5:55pm– we know that’s you, Brutus!……..I sometimes wonder if she loses her fish when she eats elsewhere. Hard to believe she ate the whole thing……
      Flies to perch about 10 mins later.

      Marlene – About the 4-hour scroll back. I have the same issue. What I have been doing is bringing the cursor back 4-hours and then move it forward a bit, stop & view next, then move it forward a bit, etc. It is slow, but happy to view the scroll back in any manner.

      In a way, I’m glad our osprey young aren’t tagged or fitted with transmitters. The mortality rate for young osprey is high. At least we can always imagine “our” broods flying high and free forever………….

        I agree completely, Mother Nature is harsh and I prefer to think of our birds in a sort of ‘ magical realism ‘ sense. Yes the mortality rate for first year chicks is high but I also like to imagine Ronny & Sandy chilling out in South America after making a successful trip down. ?

        • rjoneal September 19, 2016 at 3:53 pm - Reply

          9-19-16 Reply- CarolV and Trinity I agree also I am glad they are not tagged or we would be constantly looking for them and if they fall off the grid we would get upset, worried and all the emotions and some of the time they just lose transmission but gets picked back up later all the while you are waiting.
          I like just knowing George and Gracie do what they were made to do instinctively,to help keep their species going and they take care of their siblings until it is time for the siblings to migrate. The parents job is done now its up to the laws of nature. I do not want to know for our family, I want to believe all are good,safe,and will some day have families on their own. However when its time for George and Gracie to come back home to the nest I pray and hope they both come back and until I see both of them my heart is pounding.

          Now the other side is I am grateful and glad that some birds do get tagged and tracked this is one of the best tools scientist and specialist have to keep learning and teaching us about the ospreys.

        I feel exactly the same way CarolV. That’s what makes me so uneasy about he/she not wanting to go off. The other nests are occupied by one bird only – they don’t have a pa like George who indulges his babies.

      Finally have sound….someone on fb suggested Chrome, which worked. Came back to my regular computer and fiddled around till I found what was wrong. Guess I had pushed so many things when sound WAS out, I never reset when audio came back! So, YAY! Can hear noisy girl again!

      You could hear Brutus before you saw her/him as s/he flew about over the water before flying to the nest, where s/he still is, calling for George.

      • Betsy September 18, 2016 at 12:09 pm - Reply

        Brutus “played” with some things in the nest before briefly lying down.

        • Betsy September 18, 2016 at 12:14 pm - Reply

          Then s/he “played” with more things in the nest.

          • Betsy September 18, 2016 at 12:37 pm - Reply

            And, then s/he was up and down to the perch before I guess flying off because it has been quiet!!

      Just checked – there is one left in Cutchogue and none on the nest on my road or on the nest next to my property.

      The whole fish that George has brought lately for Brutus, when he has brought Brutus a whole fish, have been relatively small. I’m wondering if fishing is off and, therefore, a relative novice like Brutus would have an even harder time catching a fish.

      • CarolV September 18, 2016 at 11:53 am - Reply

        My son said that there was a sudden change in type of fishing they do, changing from the squid fishing they were doing well with, to something called a butter fish- new to me. Probably changes on all levels.
        Not sure what George is bringing home.

      Brutus was back at the nest at 7:49 am. George came with a fish less than 10 minutes later. He flew off after making his delivery.

      Brutus came to the nest at 6:20 am. George was right behind with a fish for Brutus, then he flew off, and a few minutes later Brutus flew off with the fish.
