Nancy L 08/18/04 09:32 am Last week when I was at the arboretum in Great River, 4 were circling around, catching the up-drafts & floating on the thermals. Early last evening when I went, at first I thought they were gone. But as I entered the n/e island, I started to hear them calling. I found 3 sitting in trees and one on its nest, eating supper. Also by the big field, one was flying about. I spied another nest, but am not positive it's an osprey nest, so I'll have to keep my eye on it next spring. Including the nest on the chimney of the mansion, that's a minimum of 4 active nests there within a half-mile of each other. There are also the 2 nests just outside the arboretum to the west, the one on Sunrise Hwy by the old Westbrook Farms, and a new one at the Montauk/Sunrise interchange - that makes 8 within a 1 - 1&1/2 mile circle; PLUS all the osprey north in the Connetquot River State Park Preserve, and there are MANY in there. This is all along the Connetquot River (the Great River to the Indians.) Don't forget that the Connetquot Preserve is home to a trout hatchery, so the osprey are loving it.
Marie 08/18/04 09:42 am My goodness...that is a lot of osprey in a relatively small area. At this rate they will be nesting in years to come like HERONS all together...smile.
Hardly as they need specificly those platform nests, but in my minds eye I can see many all lined up in a short distance in many years to come.
Nancy L 08/18/04 07:12 pm I did post quite a while back, that one of the nests is in a live pine tree, and one in a huge dead tree, neither on man-made platforms.
