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.”

      The silver lining to this sad event is that our ospreys are safe and okay and George obviously went to architecture school over the winter and is showing off his construction talents. We may not be able to see them but they are there. That, to me, is the greatest comfort.

      Isabella, Carol, Mary Anne, and any other who have posted . Thanks for all you do here. This website was posted in Newsday in 2015. I started watching it that first season with its ups and downs. It was a great experience. It led me tothe South west florida eagle cam. I have enjoyed many other cams on Explore. We have the ospreys on Long Island. I even had my students check out the cam. You get to know people by their posts. The first few years were great when we could see the nest. George really wants his privacy. Unless the cams are moved , it will be a non visible cam. Living on Long Island it has been great to know about this cam. I even went to see it from afar.
      People have worked really hard to post here. But there hasn’t been much to see often. Sad for it to end this way. Hopefully we can get back to watching in the future. I will check in here, but it is a sad site to see.
      Thanks for everything. Have a healthy and happy year.

        You too, nfc, all my best to you and everyone who watches. The cam needs to be raised, and I’m hoping that happens. This fall would be a great time to do that. There are 4 eggs at Patchogue for those wishing to watch another LI cam and three eggs at Oyster Bay. I’m sorry everyone. I’ll keep checking.

          Hi All,
          I’ve been checking in periodically and watching our George build his wall, and I will miss this site as much as you all will. I have been wishing for the camera to be readjusted for a couple of years now. I know it can’t be easy and I’m sure there will be costs involved and I just want to put it out there that maybe a go fund me or something could be started to help with the costs. We all enjoy it so much we should be willing to help with maintenance, I know I’m willing!

        It’s been a fun ride. We learned a lot along the way! Maybe it got overwhelming how much time and attention it took to take care of these ambitious birds?!
        So for now, thanks 🙏🏽 to Tommy and Christina for sharing George and his wives with us!
        Thanks to Paul and Co. for all he’s done to set-up and support the site and Aidan for his tech support.
        And Mary Anne as our moderator. Always fixing my screwups!
        I’ll keep checking but I suspect we’re “in the dark” for this year. Can always hope🤞🤞🤞🤞

      Good Morning,

      Many thanks for the Osprey camera on Orient Point- I follow it and the cameras up in Bremen, Maine several times a day – And your service is muchly appreciated!

      However – The camera at Orient has had a much better view of the nest over the past few seasons – This year the camera appears to be showing a close up of the outside edge of the nest – With only a quick Occasionally glimpse of a “small part” of a bird!?

      It would be great to be able to see the entire nest, Mom, Dad. eggs; and eventually their children – All in one view!

      As the Ospreys are back – I fear that it might be too late to reposition the camera? – But if there is anything that you can do – It would be greatly appreciated! – And if you have a Orient Point Osprey Nest fund – I would be happy to donate.

      Many thanks and Best,

      Les Black

        Hello Les

        I believe last season they cleared the nest before the ospreys returned
        Seems this year they didn’t. So they are building on top of last season’s nest.
        I may be wrong but Mary Anne may know for sure.
        Unfortunately I don’t think anything can be done.
        Unfortunately this season may be a wash☹️

      How can we dissuade them?

      • Admin Mary Anne April 16, 2023 at 5:54 am - Reply

        Have they actually built it yet? If they have, it’s against federal and state laws to move or destroy it. If the dock is very busy, with lots of people walking past, maybe they will abandon it. Surprised they are interested in a wine barrel.

        George and two females. Fledglings from last year wouldn’t be back yet and females end up further from their natal nests. This happens every year. I have a screen shot of George last year in the middle with a female on each side of him. One was Lucy. One of these Os resembles Lucy also, so we shall see. In any case, I hope they have a successful breeding season.

            I had to laugh when this popped up! Yes, please, that would be helpful!
            Nest cleared out again. Guess that’s the morning’s activity schedule.

      Bird on right was visited and put up a little show of protest. As bird on left continued to sit, George flew in, fish in foot and chirped a few choice tweets , chasing away intruder.
      That job done, looked like he hopped to perch. This bird took off, too

      They’ve been sitting across from each other for a while, with occasional chirps or a quick flyout.

      Beautiful morning for catching up on winter vacations!

      Watching moonrise….pretty glow on this water.
      Another few hours till wind gets tired of hearing itself blow. Temps are warming into the 50s and nice sunshine tomorrow.

      George is weaving in the wind.
      He sat in the nest. Surveying the manor. Promising sunshine blinding in the camera…..
      Just as he blew off. She came in….
      A few questioning chirps and it’s her turn to sit and rock in the wind.
      Temps have dropped again to low 40s . Winds are picking up with gusts to mid-high 30s.

      Hey, Mary Anne.
      Betsy sent these, hoping to get some idea what kind of bird this is. My eyes are shot but it almost looks like a hybrid…we could name it a ogle!
      If you have any time…. The time is on them.
      Appreciate it… signed the old gray mare.

      Thank heavens the ospreys are claiming their nest. I don’t know if that is Lucy or not. But the way the eagles were settling in, I thought we would have to start naming them Don Henley and Glen Frey.
      Still waiting for George’s dot to know all is well with the world.

        It’s early, we will likely see several ospreys that want this nest. I just hope George and Lucy both get back safe and sound, and that eagle decides to hang out somewhere else.
