Tommy Aprea - Windsong Osprey Nest

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

August, 2021: The nest has been built up so much that it covers our camera!

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.

      RED DEER-FORTIS ALBERTA CAM… Their kid, Legacy, has fledged. Cam was down but early this a,m.( about 7:40), she practiced, flew across nest then out. Flew across the fields and came home minutes later.

      OYSTER BAY………..
      No one slept in the nest. Nice to see they all checked in together.
      Dad dropped off a fish. The one on the perch had claimed the fish (she wasn’t challenged) Now she’s sitting on the perch with the claw still clenched, as if the fish slipped out. And she keeps looking at the “fist” as if puzzled. She went back and got the fish. There were some vocal comments but no aggression.

      FORTIS ALBERTA CAM/ RED DEER….. Kid getting good air in her practice. Chat says she flew across nest so it can’t be long before she leaps…

      FA has a 2nd cam EXSHAW with another spectacular view, of mountains, with 2 kids. All doing well but, once again, the lens has been decorated. Seems to happen every year I’ve watched. And the lens doesn’t seem that close!

      There’s this nest to check in on. Australia…. Female has laid 2 eggs so far. The history of the nest is beneath the video on youtube live stream.

        Carol– I watch this nest during their season which starts now. At least there will be some ospreys to see in the off season here in the usa.. They zoom out and you can see the barge. It has been a year of success and failure for the ospreys around the world. It is always good to have another nest to watch.

        I’m thinking George would have been busy fishing. And residents in the nest would have trompled down any nesting . But probably, like 2019, it would have been a s**# show, with the lens so close to the kids. So it’s a moot point. Just sorry to be missing them, George , Lucy and TOW. Wondering who will be back next year.

      Good morning All. I am a tad curious about the where abouts of the little trash bag at Oyster Bay. Yesterday it was being moved around slightly.

      7/8/21….. This was a rescue conducted by Eric Greene and the Montana Osprey Project team….
      The landowner allows no baling twine usage on his ranch, so parent went shopping elsewhere. Four chicks on the nest were involved when they went up. One was deceased.
      This chick was so tightly tangled, his one leg was badly swollen. The chicks were untangled and returned to nest.
      The last pic was taken by Chris Ford, the landowner, showing the parents with 2 of the chicks, doing well. 8/4/21

      OYSTER BAY…. 2 of these guys are very independent… sleep outside the nest while Mom keeps the 3rd company. He’s still sleeping on the nest, with the trash bag for company. Later switched to the perch.

      Everyone made it in for breakfish. They mostly self feed, stealing from each other. And then off to play.

      WOW. This nest really got built up this year ! Almost blocking the camera again. George is certainly a dedicated worker !

      Sunny Sunday…..72 going to mid 70s. Cool way to start August but I’ll take it!

      George was in @5:33, already has a fish and mantles over it. Has some there then takes off.
      When Lucy comes in, he brings the fish back for her.

        Someone came in behind George….
        Later, TOW lands and brought some seaweed with her. She’s not giving up! Wonder if she tells her friends… oh, yes, my boyfriend’s married… but they’re separated!

      Two birds on the nest. She’s been sitting there at least half an hour, no begging.
      The legs are probably George on his way up on the camera….. scritch, scritch, scritch…. At least he tamped down some of the debris……

      Hello all….. a voice out of the past. I have not watched for a long time. Now I see the camera is featuring legs ONLY. What happened??????? And when?
      I recognize George’s legs, they are “dirty-looking”. Thank you ,Rodee

        The nest was nice and clear this spring, but was built up by George and now the view is what you see here!

      • CarolV July 31, 2021 at 6:42 pm - Reply

        Hey, Rodee. Good to hear from you!
        It’s been getting progressively worse. Then this morning, George tried climbing to the perch, where he has been building a “balcony”, judging by how much stuff fell down.!

      OYSTER BAY…
      Dad delivered a still flipping fish…. and there was a disagreement and a tug o’fish….

        G was in @5:15 with someone , prob Lucy, right behind.
        Not long after, I think this is TOW stopping by. It looked like someone was diving at her before she left.

        As someone, probably George, climbed to the perch, all this stuff cascaded over.
        I can hear noises upstairs and occasional osprey comments.

      Took a few minutes to figure this out
      As if an osprey appeared in the background
      Believe George was in front…then went upstairs
      Lucy is osprey in the background?

        Looks like landscape fabric again
        George has been working on curb appeal
        I used to use it …don’t know if it harms them….but I look at it differently now

      Beautiful sunny Friday after some heavy rain overnight. 70 with a nice breeze. May hit 80
      G was in at 5:21….. L showed 5:45

      George brought in his fish @6:19. He mantled over it but when Lucy tried to take it, he took off.
      Lucy waited around, finding a dried up fishtail to chew on.

      • CarolV July 30, 2021 at 8:53 am - Reply

        After a long wait, G is back with the fish.
        Lucy is ready…….
        I’m saying Lucy but not 100% sure. Sometimes hard to tell at these angles. But I think she acts more like Lucy

        Then built a new stairway to climb to the balcony. His nails clicked against the lens…..

        Started raining by me about 6. Working its way east. Chance of storms thru out the night; low 70s.

      OYSTER BAY…. The whole fam was in as Dad delivered another fish. Will be harder and harder to catch them all together.
      ……………. The kid in the back has been self feeding on a previous fish. Dad took off and one kid took off, while Mom started feeding one kid. The reunion didn’t last long.

        Robert, wish I could help but I am unaware of a live streaming cam on a nest in Manorville, sorry. The eggs at this nest in East Marion did not hatch due to an inexperienced female who would not brood, she laid 5 eggs.

      One kid was loudly complaining…. maybe wanted their own perch? Took off and flew around in a big circle and could be heard landing on the camera!

        Expected to peek in and find everyone sleeping
        There’s always one in the bunch
        If they continue raising three….maybe they should surround nest with perches !😀

      Hazy morning…. and bad lighting for pics.
      G was in just after 5…. Lucy showed her beak about 5:27′
      George delivered breakfish @5:42.

      Lucy noisily took it to the perch and complained that George wasn’t leaving fast enough.
      George was back shortly with seaweed………………. is there any left on the beach??????
