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.

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.

“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.”

      Newfoundland nest…. The chick on the left has not moved all day.
      The chick on the right was moving this morning… Male brought a fish but chick watched without begging and mom did not feed, as far as I could see.
      The chick on the right is now not moving……………………………………………………….

      Mother is still protecting from rain….

        They both passed away this morning. Too much rain, three days of it and not enough sheltering by the mother. Very sad.

        • CarolV July 17, 2020 at 7:49 pm - Reply

          Everytime I ran through the video, she was on them, soaking wet herself…. for hours at a time, To the point where the male left fish and she ignored it. How old were these guys? Had they gotten their protective feathers yet?
          It just looked like it rained so much for so long, the whole nest was soaked…..
          But you know I stick up for the birds….. nature just sucks some times….
          Incredibly sad

          • Admin Mary Anne July 17, 2020 at 9:19 pm - Reply

            The chicks both were 17 days old. They cannot thermoregulate their core temperature at this age, so they are saying they died from exposure. They didn’t have their protective feathers yet. I have seen this happen before at other nests during days of rain when there are young chicks. I feel bad for all of them, including the parents.

            • g willie July 18, 2020 at 6:46 pm

              Some of this info is inaccurate……..yes, weather was horrid, very cold w driving wind and rain from the NE…BUT
              Chicks died of starvation, not exposure. Fish deliveries over the previous ~week were few, puny and infrequent. Laterally, when they arrived, female would devour the tiny fish. On the 15th, one chick was so weak it could barely beg, it barely moved on the 16th and died overnight. ~6AM on the 17, a tiny fish was delivered and was devoured by female in front of the remaining screaming chick. A second small fish arrived ~10AM, last chick barely moving went unfed. Mother was ALWAYS nestled over both chicks (ex feeding), providing 5-star shelter. Ironically, one of the largest fish ever delivered to that nest arrived after 2nd chick’s passing….mother snatched it and flew away. (fwiw, 1st hatched Jun 30, 2nd Jul 01)

              Is this nest discussed elsewhere? The locals slammed the door to their FB group, and a few outcasts from there set up a 2nd group…..private, of course. Einsteins!!!!

          I know that nature can be cruel but we really need to ask ourselves WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON THIS YEAR? I watch 6 osprey nests and there is only 1 with chicks this year. There is something going on and I don’t think that it is “just nature”. I think that all the roll backs of environmental safeguards has really impacted the avian world. I have noticed it in my own backyard. I used to go through a 25# bag of thistle seed for the goldfinches every 2 weeks, this year I might need a 10# bag a month because I don’t have the goldfinches I usually have. There is something going on!
          Sorry I got on my soapbox but I really am concerned!

            I don’t know, Paula, but I don’t have the songbirds I used to either. This has been a rough year for ospreys. I recall saying that last year but this year seems worse for chick fatalities and eggs that didn’t hatch. Do you watch The Marders cam? It’s a Long Island nest. I know 2 out of 3 chicks have fledged, at least, you can see them flying around over the water and flying in to land. Quite enjoyable to watch.

            Paula… was just discussing this with my husband….we used to have what I called bird hour….early evening we would sit out and watch them take dirt baths…go in our fountain…take turns in the birdbath. We would see sparrows, finches, cat birds, morning doves, mocking birds, chickadees, cardinals, blue jays, wrens, robins, humming birds, etc…..this year mostly sparrows and cardinals. Also have not seen a butterfly or dragonfly. Something we also saw daily. Bats flew back and forth every night…now occasionally. I am thinking maybe due to people are home more…hanging out in their yards. Letting their dogs and cats out more. Doing more yard work…bbqing, fire pits etc. maybe the pandemic is affecting them in this manner?

      @17:50……….. I wasn’t sure this was George at first. Couldn’t get a good look at him . He was acting very “flirty”, guarding the fish and doing the wing waggle. Jane paced back and forth behind him but couldn’t get to the fish. When she tried a little harder, he took off.
      About a minute later, he was back. Jane took no chances and got that fish…. a good one….. and took off like a crazy person!

I didn’t know the first chick had died until late yesterday, so I was so hopeful that the 2nd egg would hatch and they would have one successful young one this year. But it seems that they, too, realize the other egg isn’t going to hatch. So sad to just watch it disappear under the nesting material.

      Thank you to all are involved with OspreyZone. I have been watching this since its inception and look forward to it every spring. Have to say, it is an emotional rollercoaster at times, actually most years. This year the eggs came so late in the season. Yankee was born at a time when most are getting ready to fledge. Who knows if there was something wrong other than the timing. I have always found that nature takes care of itself. While it is so sad and heartbreaking, it is nature and it’s not for the weak of heart. I have found this a sad year for lots of nests. One nest I watch was made a few years ago by a couple that was forced out of their nest by a young Osprey pair. They built a new nest on a small tree. This year they were here when we had a storm. The branch broke on the tree and the nest was lost. A couple of days later, I found Osprey eggs on the sand. The next day they were gone. I am sure some sort of animal got to them. Such horrible timing for this pair. This couple has since built a new nest in the same small tree. Another nest was built on an electrical pole. PSEG did put up a new pole and move the nest with the two eggs. It took the female a few days accept the new nest. She sat on the eggs for such a long time but the eggs were not viable and they abandoned the nest. Three nests, six eggs, zero babies. I am sure there are many more as well. I am hoping George and Jane have a safe journey south and make it back here safely next year. Hopefully, 2021 will be a better year for them and for humankind. Thank you again for this wonderful site. I will be looking forward to watching it next spring.

        As I believe someone mentioned, what we see on ospreycams is such a small segment of the osprey population, we have little idea of what is happening all over. We have been blessed with 10 fledged birds since this nest was established. I think we have done well. And enjoyed the ride to boot!

      I’m saddened by our loss and reminded how privileged we are to be able to witness nature in the raw.

      The good news is that the Ospreys have come back, from near extinction. In fact, almost too strong. There are Ospreys everywhere, there was a lot of fighting this year, it seems there is a shortage of nests but the Ospreys are abundant.

      Please explain why you think the other egg will not hatch. Yankee was born on July 3rd I believe and if I remember correctly the eggs were laid 5 or 6 days apart. I’m thinking there is still a chance. Please advise.

      Also, do we really know if it’s the Jane from last year, or the original George, for that matter. Seems to me that the female was at a loss, what to do, except for defending the nest , which made for some great highlights. The “intruders” were so persistent, especially the female, it always made me question if our couple were originals or not. Maybe the couple in the nest are the intruders, Do we really know?

      • CarolV July 8, 2020 at 4:54 pm - Reply

        Hi, Paul….
        We are all sad, too. We compared pics from previous years with this female. The under wing markings are distinctive and show that this is Jane of 2018.
        Same with George. He has several i.d. spots and his head markings compare.

        There may be a slight chance of a hatch. Since we can’t tell those beautiful eggs apart, let’s assume that is #2 still sitting there. Laid on 5/29, with an incubation of 34-40 days (varies between sites- some say 42) we are on day 39-40.

        So, we shall see…..
        And thank you for all you and your “helpers do to keep this site going! I’m especially glad Tommy and Christina named this baby so early… something to remember her/him by.

        And, although many blame the parents, there is a good chance there was some deficiency in the chick that the parents sensed. We don’t know.
        Take care………… stay healthy

        Paul, today is day 40 for the second egg, if that is the second egg. If it’s the first egg, which I doubt, then it’s at 45 days and it’s for sure not viable. Second eggs most often hatch at 36 or 37 days and we are past that time frame. But nothing is etched in stone. And as Carol said already, we know we have George and Jane on the nest. Thank you for everything that you do!

        If Yankee was not ill. Think intruders played a part. At least a handful of times seemed Jane and George were going to feed her. They were sidetracked by relentless intruders.It is their instinct to guard the nest

      • GinaM July 10, 2020 at 10:55 am - Reply

        Hello Paul,
        I don’t think that was Jane. I did think it was George because of his underwing mark. But the way the nest was being “claimed” by other ospreys, I can’t help but think that maybe our original Gracey or even Jane were returning and fighting for their real estate.
        That said, I didn’t think either egg was viable and was surprise when Yankee hatched.
        Again, we remember that nature can be brutal, and we’ve seen our share here on Ospreyzone.
        Thank you, as always, for allowing us this glimpse into the lives of these magnificent birds.

I hadn’t been watching for a couple days, and immediately thought, oh my, something is wrong with baby. And amazingly, Mother Nature takes her course, the parent knowing when it’s time, and that covering by George was something to see.

        So very sad. CarolV and I commented to each other about our concerns on the very little parenting, especially by Jane this season.RIP little Yankee…..Another sad event for 2020….

        Good morning Mary Anne…. thank you for all you do.
        Such a sad ending to a season we were all so excited about. I like to think Jane and George knew something was amiss with Yankee. This is nature’s way,as awful as it is to witness. Yankee, your sweet little soul is now in heaven

        Thank you, Mary Anne. This is heartbreaking for sure, but I’m so grateful for the camera and all the posted pictures and comments over the years. This is the risk we take for that benefit. RIP little cutie Yankee.

        Thanks Mary Anne for the update. It is sad. Now Yankee will fly free . Glad that Yankee had a name. It has been wonderful to see the nest this year. We can hope for a better outcome next year. The camera placement was great. Now we can watch George and Jane and see how they handle life. Special thanks to the owners of the cams and all who work to make it work. Thanks to Carol and Isabella for the posts and pictures that make the chat interesting. Glad that we have this community to chat on.

          Thank you nfc
          I agree about the chick having a name. Gives her dignity. Seems in the past, chicks weren’t named til almost fledge time.

        Sending out a big, far reaching hug for all!….although we don’t see each other. We are feeling this loss “together “.
        Actually glad second egg won’t hatch. It is brutally hot and humid. And will be for a while. Too late in the season for a newborn. Chicks in other nest are older and have a better chance of surviving it.

      Don’t look good. Maine’s Hog Island didn’t have any luck having their chicks. They were brother by owls. This is day 40 for second egg thinks it is to late in the season for it to hatch.

      • Admin Mary Anne July 8, 2020 at 8:58 am - Reply

        Yes, that egg is likely non-viable.

    66. CarolV July 8, 2020 at 8:47 am - Reply

      Life goes on…….. Jane continues to incubate eggie….. presumably non-viable and George continues to build…………… he must have an endless supply of these crazy branches.

      I.m very sad about Yankee. Taking a break for a bit

      They let the chick starve to death. The baby is dead!

    68. CarolV July 8, 2020 at 7:41 am - Reply

      I prefer to think the parents sense something wrong with their chick. Trying to feed her would have been a way to evaluate it.
      Many years ago, my cat had a litter of kittens. One had a birth defect. Beyond initial contact, the mother ignored it. (Sadly, I had no money for vet care…. rough memory) And the kitten died.
      As observers, we would not know this. The evidence for me is knowing past performance of this pair. Perhaps a little spotty with Jane, but George has always stepped up.
      I for one, won’t judge them or speculate further……….. it is what it is…

        it is painful to watch-maybe thats what happened to the blind baby deer we rescued-also happened to me with a litter of kittens-when there is a “runt”as they say Mom rejects it! That is nature & sometimes can be heartbreaking! God Bless Mom & Dad they did the best they knew how!

        I’m in your camp CarolV….sending you a hug! X0

        I agree with you, Carol. I kept thinking the same thing over and over all last night. Was praying for a better outcome, but the fact that their behavior, especially George’s, was so off this time definitely seems to indicate that they knew something was wrong with the baby. So very sad.

      • Morrison5 July 8, 2020 at 9:58 pm - Reply

        Something must have been wrong with the baby. On Saturday we watch as one of the parents tried to feed Yankee, the baby was not lifting it’s head for the food being offered. So sad.

      Yankee looks abut weak is he getting enough food.? I have only seen him fed occasionally and by George.

      GM, Jane……. must be leftover fish from last night.

      • CarolV July 8, 2020 at 7:27 am - Reply

        GM, George…..

        • CarolV July 8, 2020 at 7:30 am - Reply

          Jane did not take fish; George ate it……………. Yankee is moving around the eggcup but not really raising her head. George checks her over and settles.

          • CarolV July 8, 2020 at 7:32 am - Reply

            They trade trade nest duty several times and George brought a long branch….

    71. Isabella July 8, 2020 at 1:56 am - Reply

      Wondering if Yankee was born too late in the season. So hot and humid!….Squirmy, Sunny and Breeze were earlier……..pic of Jane feeding Squirmy……feeding Sunny while George was eating the bugs in egg shell……maybe one of the experts listed above can give an answer or opinion!

      I’ve been an OZ viewer for several years but not often enough to tell one parent from another. This year I share concerns that Yankee is not being properly parented. I remember reading some early comments that perhaps this mom is not Jane. Is it remotely possible that this is an accurate assessment and Jane’s replacement sadly doesn’t understand family life?

    73. CarolV July 7, 2020 at 8:30 pm - Reply

      Sorry…. lens has fogged over…..

      George brought in a fish………….. Jane left without it.
      George has been patiently waiting, but the chick is not responding. She has moved around the eggcup but not lifting her head.
