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.

      Dear Paul, just saw the rescue video and my heart is so full of joy!! What brave people to do this work on such a windy day. Must be the windiest day of the summer, naturally. Luckily, the rain started shortly after they finished.
      I, too, would be more than happy to make a donation for all that has taken place.
      You sure wasted no time in getting the matter resolved. I would love to know where George and Gracie were — if they knew humans were up there with their babies. It brought tears to my eyes when I advanced and saw them both flapping their wings, just like old times.
      Can’t thank you enough for all you have done.
      P.S. Love the clean screen.

      Trying one more time, well in my lifetime, there have been a few goose bumps emotional movies, Wizard, cindarella, Golden Pond, ET, Titanic, etc., but never had a recent happy, sad, hoping emotion escapade like this! Will be so very happy to hear the particulars! And just loved scrolling back to see a loving glove taking care of the chicks, the yuck in the nest and cleaning the screen! Will patiently await all the info… but another great big HUG and thanks to YOU, Paul & Crew! xoxoxoxox

      I am still thinking about that wonderful rescue. It was so amazing. A few days ago I commented that it looked like George brought in a baby shark (it wasn’t) to the nest. I remember seeing a fishing line attached to it and got initially worried, but it broke off. I wonder if it was the same one. I love how they cleaned the camera and cleared out some of the plastic and other rope that was in the nest. I wonder where George is during all of this? Gracie took off a little while ago, or maybe she is on the perch. This was a GREAT DAY and I am so grateful to Paul and whoever that volunteer guy was who saved our little chick. He was so gentle with them. What a great idea to put a blanket on them.
      THANK YOU AGAIN!

      Was hoping some food would show up before dark. The kids seemed to be cuddling closer, whether from the trauma or the rain. Have gone back to watch the rescue at least four times. Almost made it all the way last time before the video error occurred. I imagine it will be a highlight. And it is soooooo nice to see so clearly! Wonder how long the kids behave?

      Yippy! I think the chick freed himself or herself. BTW, does anyone know the gender of the chicks??? They look good to fly to me and I hope I’m right on this account!

      When we saw the PSEG trucks arrived below the nest, a number of neighbors gathered to watch. After the preliminary checking and test run, 3 men climbed into a bucket and were slowly raised about 100 feet. They wore hard hats, glasses, gloves, thick rubber vests and one had a boat gaff to ward off one of the parents who was swooping in in attack mode. One of the three men, a pilot and bird rescue expert carried a container with scissors, a blanket, windex, papers towels and other items. He place the quilted blanket over the babies and was able to cut and remove all the fishing line. It was quite a sight. When they all came down, we applauded and cheered. We were able to see all the fishing line (no hooks) and we were told the baby’s leg looked fine. The press was there and there should be some coverage.
      A good day for the ospreys and a happy conclusion to this tough issue.

      Don’t think the chicks will suffer any ill effects from intervening at this point, they did what they usually do when they are banded in the nest.. they hunkered down and got very quiet.

      Just about 5:53pmEDT the camera lens was cleared to show the chicks flatted to the floor as they do when under threat. They were covered by a blanket and gently inspected. The tied chick was carefully freed from the line and every bit of it removed. His leg was inspected and appeared in good shape. The heroes also removed those pieces of wire and some plastic. These guys sounded like they were really glad to be doing what they were doing.!
      The kids had their mug shots taken and in all it took maybe 7-8 mins. Gracie was back on nest within minutes of the last hand leaving. The chicks may still be plastered to the deck in case the aliens return!
      Thank you all so much for a job so expertly done! Especially the guy who lost his helmet! In danger and still did his job!

      Kudos to you Paul, Tommy and all those involved with the freeing of both birds.

      Thank you for the clean lens, and thank you for letting us watch everything. What gentle hands that person had. And the knowledge and expertise, of course,

      Now if food comes before the forecasted T-storm, our day should be complete..

      And………….then there is the sub-human dentist who killed a treasured lion for sport………..Shame on him and anyone else who would destroy such a beautiful animal. He should be forced to watch the video of the kindhearted person who helped our little chick and what lengths some will go to to preserve our earth and it’s beings. I cried happy tears and sad tears today……….

        I agree Wendy…when i see the pictures of that beautiful majestic lion….I think, how could someone possibly kill him. WHY? It is such a shame.

      What a relief, the chick is free, the camera is clean and the nest is clean of the debris that caused this who thing. Thanks to Paul and all his work. Now, someone please tell George to be more selective on his items for nest decorations. The chicks are pancaked in the nest trying to figure out what was that thing that invaded their home and is it gone. Mom is on guard and all is well with the world 🙂
