IMPORTANT: Messages from osprey experts

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.

        Yes in deed she does Nita. Year’s ago I asked her to give weather updates at the nest for those who don’t live in New York or around the Long Island area. Especially in the summertime when our Osprey Family is there.
        She has never failed us and always keeps us informed with her great sense of humor to boot.

      Thanks CarolV Alizarin and I have done calendar 2years in a row.
      She and I do put in a lot of time to make it.
      Alizarin always makes a great calendar and I love being part of her vision. So many followers look forward to it every year.
      She does not comment a lot but our Osprey Family would be incomplete without her.

      It snowed overnight, thru the morning…it was light, fluffy snow and came off the car easily. I wasn’t home to get a shot earlier, but I scrolled back for this nice late-day shot as the sky turned pink and gray. The sun had been out in the afternoon, causing some melting. Cold temps(low 20s, possible teens in places) will refreeze all the snow melt. Could be dangerous walking and possible black ice.

      Got a copy of the calendar and another good job! Thank you, Alizarin and your helper, Rjoneal, for all your hard work!

      Here is an Adult Eagle landing on the Osprey nest with a fish he/she eats fish then leaves. A little hard to see but the Eagle is there. I have seen a pair of Eagles at the Osprey nest a lot lately but it does not appear they have taken over the nest. Now the Ospreys usually start mating anytime from December but usually closer to January it will be interesting to see if the Osprey are able to hold their nest or if the Eagles will take it over. So far no one has started to rebuild nest. Right after the Osprey Nest was empty except for brief stops around September the Cell Phone co.went up and cleaned out some of the nest material. They do this so the nest wont interfere with the cell phone tower every couple of years when needed and yes they have to get some kind of permission on when and so they can remove some of the nesting.

      Hey everyone…I want to take a moment to apologize to Rjoneal – Nita and I misunderstood a comment from her this morning. We are truly sorry!

      It’s a long story and I won’t go into great detail, but we had been discussing not being able to see a photo clearly from the admin page (which looks totally different from this page) before approving it. I misread her comment to Nita this morning and thought she meant something totally different and I’m sorry for that.

      There has been some discord about photos in this group recently that I find rather childish and hope it stops.

      To clarify: Any screenshots taken from the OZ cam can be posted as long as the OZ logo is on the photo. This includes cropped photos, photos with writing or cute stamps on them, creatively edited photos etc…
      (of course no profanity or anything perverse can be added to them)
      Allowing creative freedom is a wonderful thing.

      If these things bother you, perhaps this isn’t the group for you.
      We all have different likes, dislikes, wants, needs and personalities but we can still choose to be kind to one another, even if we don’t agree.
      If you can’t say something nice please don’t say anything at all.
      Negative, mean-spirited and unkind comments will be deleted.

      I’ve said it before but I will say it again….this cam and chat platform is a privilege! And we should treat it as such 💗

      Good morning, everyone. Enjoying the first of 5 days off………..yea!
      It was colder last night than expected….28 by me now and a few degrees warmer on the North Fork by the nest. Supposed to hit low 50s and get cloudier today.

      The sun was escaping from that bank of clouds earlier and made its presence known. If I were at work, I would probably be wearing sunglasses- big windows where that sun shines brightly until it works its way upward past the roof line; not just shining in my eyes when I look that way but reflecting off metal surfaces around me. Feels good but rough on the eyes!

      Hope everyone has a great weekend!

      December 3rd
      Full Cold Moon
      10:47 am
      The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun…………….(info from Farmers’ Almanac)

      Last full moon of 2017……………………only 84% full and looks bright already! Weather crisp and clear….low wind…..about 51 going to mid 40s overnight….next few days should be similar, maybe dropping to 30s overnight this weekend. Looks like a nice clear night for full moon Sat. night

If someone wants to write a caption on their photos or crop it differently it’s ok and if others want to enhance them that’s ok too.

          will delete any that don’t comply with the rules. Hope this is satisfactory for everyone.
          Lesson learned for me. We want all our members to feel free to post there photos without fear of
          someone changing them. Have a blessed day everyone,

          Rj I explained to u that on our admin page we cannot click on the photo to enlarge it before approving it or we would do that…the thumbnail photos are tiny and blurry. So Nita and I will be checking the photos after posting them. Unfortunately this is the only way we can do things at this time.

          My letter to Santa this year includes my wish for this group to relax, be kind to one another and just enjoy this group, all of its members and the wonderful privilege we have of having an Osprey cam and chat platform to share on. Plz Santa!

      So, you guys know me and my feelings on printing on pictures (or cropped funny). These are from 7/26/2016 when the juvenile intruder landed on the nest. I didn’t have the original pictures after the computer crash monster ate them last November. Both of these were posted by others that I liked as I was going back through the comment pages, but …

      So I touched them up. Tell me what you think about how they came out. The first pictures are my touch-ups of each set and the second is the original.

      • Betsy November 28, 2017 at 1:57 pm - Reply

        Okay, so they posted by how they were labeled in the folder — by name 😀 Have to remember that!!. So, the first picture is the touched up one and it’s original is the bottom-most picture. The second picture is the touched up one and the one right below it is its original.

        • Admin Nita November 28, 2017 at 4:19 pm - Reply

          I like the touched up ones. They’re brighter.

          • Betsy November 28, 2017 at 7:00 pm - Reply

            Thank you. In addition to my not liking printing on the pictures themselves, when the video is stopped for a screenshot there is a wide swath of shaded area along the top along with the printing, not only giving the illusion darkening the entire picture, but sometimes blocking out pretty little details at the top of the picture!! I don’t think people realize the difference until it’s compared to a picture without it. You can really see the color difference with this comparison photo!!

            • Betsy November 28, 2017 at 7:40 pm

              But, I can’t get it to work with every picture!! No matter how hard I tried — softening edges, layering pictures, cropping and pasting and aligning their heads, using MS Paint and Paint 3D — I couldn’t clear all of the shading from around the stray juvenile’s head on this picture!! 😀 😀

            • Betsy November 28, 2017 at 9:50 pm

            • Trinity November 29, 2017 at 9:30 am

              It’s nice of you to edit the pictures, but please remember that this is a public forum and not an art webpage. I personally am not tech savvy at all, so I’m appreciative of any images posted here. Not everyone has the time to jazz up their pics or frankly they don’t feel it’s necessary. And pointing out that you aren’t satisfied with the original images comes across as rather insensitive.

        JanL: If I remember correctly, the flag went up October 1st, same as last year. I think Tommy waits until he’s sure the osprey are gone (although at least one of them was still hanging around at that time).

      Here in Florida were I live we have Ospreys all year long as you know from me posting my Backyard Ospreys but here is a YOU-TUBE channel actually called My Backyard Birding and today they posted several different looks of Ospreys. Our Ospreys mate and start their families different from the migrating Osprey. If you have time to watch video you should every one is a beautiful Osprey.

      Here is the info about Florida Ospreys, just an interesting point to bring to your attention the Ospreys here in Florida did not get affected by pesticide-related population declines in 1950s – 1960s. Here is a few shots of the ospreys in video. .

      It is Osprey Season again – also known as Fish Hawks – watching four different Ospreys watching on the same Morning. I think two of these are young Osprey. Real territory selection battles and serious calling wont start for about another month. The cycle of Osprey life continues but Ospreys are even more visible now than last season.

      Appearance:
      The undersides of the toes on each foot are covered with short spines, which help them grasp slippery fish.
      Habitat:
      The osprey is smaller than the bald eagles that typically share the same habitats, but its five to six foot wingspan is impressive nonetheless. Adults are dark brown above with a white underside and head. Look for the distinctive dark line that extends behind the eye and the gull-like way the narrow wings are angled downward when the birds are in flight.
      The osprey is found year-round in Florida both as a nesting species and as a spring and fall migrant passing between more northern areas and Central and South America. Ospreys in Florida did not suffer the serious pesticide-related population declines that occurred in other states in the 1950s and 1960s. Pesticides, shoreline development and declining water quality continue to threaten the abundance and availability of food and nest sites for ospreys.
      Behavior:
      Ospreys, also known as “fish hawks,” are expert anglers that like to hover above the water, locate their prey and then swoop down for the capture with talons extended.
      In Florida, ospreys commonly capture saltwater catfish, mullet, spotted trout, shad, crappie and sunfish from coastal habitats and freshwater lakes and rivers for their diet.
      Ospreys build large stick nests located in the tops of large living or dead trees and on manmade structures such as utility poles, channel markers and nest platforms. Ospreys have adapted so well to artificial nest sites that the species now nests in areas (e.g. inner cities) once considered unsuitable. Nests are commonly reused for many years. Nesting begins from December (south Florida) to late February (north Florida). The incubation and nestling period extends into the summer months.
      The osprey is listed as a Species of Special Concern only in Monroe County. Permits are required throughout the state to remove a nest for these wonderful raptors, however, and a replacement structure must be erected to mitigate the removal of the nest.

        I’m always on the hunt for osprey during my visits to the Florida Keys, though I wasn’t aware Monroe County has them listed under special concern. In a few months I’ll be down there, but the hurricane did quite a number on the islands and thinking of the devastated wildlife breaks my heart.

          The Ospreys are tough birds Trinity as you know. Florida is calling you sunny nice 75 degrees. You know Bob lives in Longboat Florida and they weathered through the hurricane. However you are right many animals did not survive but as you know I believe you will see an Osprey or two just depends if the fish and the trees are still in that area. I am happy my Ospreys in my area are doing just fine. I myself have not been to the Keys since hurricane heck we are still doing repairs to my property.
          Thanks for reading my post and for posting. Take Care

      As night comes in, it always amazes me that it’s dark here at ground level but there’s still light up there at 60 feet and the panoramic view…………the grayness highlights all the treasures that are still inhabiting the nest…….and the green and yellow ribbons that seem to be woven in to the life of our nest………..
      As the light fades, we can see Buglight across the bay, just left of top center, marking the sandbar for boaters. And I was lucky enough to catch the quick blinking red light that marks the jetty on the left…..So much beauty to find all around when we pause to take a look…………………..

      Hello to ADMIN–Nita– (thanks for encouraging my silliness) and everyone who is still checking in!

        Does anyone remember if the goggles went overboard or were buried?

        • JanL November 27, 2017 at 9:19 am - Reply

          CarolV, I think the consensus was that the goggles went overboard…I don’t have a screenshot, and was not viewing when it occurred, but there was some discussion on it—they were moved closer and closer to that top edge of the nest over time, then one day they were just gone….:)

          They’re still there — they were knocked partly over the edge in the morning of 8/18 around 5:16 am by Eclipse but the band apparently snagged on something.

        Your post reminded me of being a kid listening to my dad singing “ sitting on the dock of the bay “ by Otis Redding 😀

          That’s it….can’t do musical notes unless I’m on my phone…..always loved that song!

            Sorry- was thinking Otis Redding at first, but wound up with an even older song– this was to the tune of “Standin’ on the corner. watchin’ all the girls go by..”..are you old enough for that one??? Made me curious so I googled….Dean Martin, 1964 release……..feeling old…………….

            • Trinity November 27, 2017 at 7:46 pm

              Not old enough for that, I’m a child of the 80’s. 😀

            • Rjoneal November 28, 2017 at 9:51 am

              Wow CarolV that is an oldie for sure but I did grow up in a house were my parents listen to Dean Martin and Sinatra so I remberered hearing that song. You sure brought back the good old days were things were just simple but we were all so much friendlier and happier.
