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.

“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.”

      We’re waiting…..
      2 in the nest….

      Good Saturday morning on Labor Day weekend…. Talk about a long, hot summer!
      But our time with the Oz family seemed so short! It was such a joy watching Lucy flourish… and she’s still surprising us!

      G stopped by w/seaweed @15:43
      @17:21, one kid came in with a flipping fish. Did she catch it or was given it elsewhere? Did not see an exchange.
      She was just holding it and checking it out for a while before tearing it to itand gobbling!
      At 18:11, Mouthy landed and was trying to get closer when G landed one minute later. He had fish chunk which he left
      Mouthy took off after him. He returned about 18:19 to find that chunk G left. Went quickly because Mouthy took the kid’s fish which she didn’t fight over.
      Kid left and Mouthy ate away on those leftovers.

      Good news/bad news…. No pics but good events
      G brought a large whole fish to one kid…. Little piglet was gulping it down when he decided to clear out, taking the leftovers with him. Delivery was about 17:20….
      Second kid, I THINK the youngest, came in to hang around.
      That was about 18:00
      Around 18:23, what looked like Lucy delivered a whole fish to this 2nd kid. Adult stayed for a few minutes while kid did some quiet yammering.; what I think was Lucy took off. Kid ate then took her fish to go.
      Admittedly, I’m uncertain about Lucy. I hadn’t expected to see her here still. But when did Lucy ever do the expected.
      But no pics. Sorry… have some computer use back but can’t do pics yet.
      Do have pic of nest, which looks better than it has for a while!

        And correction….. sec kid took fish from first about 18:00. Both outt of sight when adult came in. One came off perch to claim fresh fish.
        Couple more years, I may get the hang of this!
        Just so happy to have a little control back on my computer! Got carried away.

        This one may be another Sandy, if you remember her. We used to joke George would have to drag the nest away to get her to leave!as it was, he practically had to push her ahead of him!

        A beautiful morning.. about 70 calling for sunshine and 80 today. Winds from the west @7mph.
        Don’t mean to be ungrateful, but like so much of the country, we’re drying up. The fall may be very dull this year, wIth autumn colors very subdued. . But the alternative seems to be flooding…. It’s complicated!

      G landed, one kid came in to yap. They sat together for a while.
      Then another one joined the noise.

      It was a houdini moment when the video skipped and G disappeared… now you see him, now you don’t… always startling!

      Kid that just came in went back to get fishtail from, I believe, G; while one on right is being fed, presumably Lucy

        So I haven’t been able to tell if all kids are still here. Haven’t seen 3 together. Has anyone?
        But I thought Lucy was gone because I kept missing her at the nest till I suddenly saw her several times in an afternoon . I guess they do some exploring in prep for actual departure.
