Shelley 04/09/04 02:19 pm I am hearing alot of red-winged blackbird voices in the background, quite clearly, so I'm assuming they're close. I asked this before but I think that question got lost in all the other current excitement. Is it a red-winged blackbird's nest below the ospreys and is it actually part of the osprey nest or is it somewhere else, close by? I think I read someone mentioning that it was a starling's nest but I recognize the red-wing's call, for certain, and I've seen one (or more, who the heck knows) at the far right side, on the branches. Does anyone know?
Mickey 04/09/04 02:33 pm The Osprey often share their nests with other smaller birds from what Ive read. Think of it as a condominium type setup. There are birds nesting under the Ospreys but I cant say what kind for sure. DPOF has said this nest is apprx 5 feet and in the 100`s of pounds and I think they said its over 20 years old.
Marei 04/09/04 03:09 pm I thought I would answer the question of RED-WINGED BALCK BIRDS... they nest in WETLANDS, ie in tall cat-tails/ grass tussocks, waterside shrubs or low trees. Starlings might nest in the Osprey's nest below the main nest but certainly house sparrows do. I am an avid birder( 15yrs) so I know just a few things about birds. One never knows it all even in a life time. We all learn from each other. I love this forum on the OSPREYS.
