Madeline 09/12/05 02:41 pm WOW. I can't believe the condition of the nest there. It is totally in a winter mode. No twigs only mud, and of course the most important thing, an osprey. It appears to be an adult, but I could be wrong. Nice to still see one.
Ivy 09/12/05 03:50 pm I had been watching the Connecticut osprey about four hours ago and was surprised to see that it was still on the nest when I just checked a few minutes ago When I watched it earlier (around noon), it seemed restless, moving from the nest to a post at the nest, to the cam, away from the nest briefly and then back to another post. It was squawking quite a bit, and I was wondering if it was calling for food. I'm sure it is enjoying the beautiful weather, but it may be hungry as I haven't seen any fish. I just assumed this was a juvenile, but I'm not qualified to determine that.

I was comparing this nest to the Woods Hole nest, the DPOF nest, and the Blackwater Refuge nest, and this one does seems to be more in the winter mode than the others, but not by all that much, except for the lack of twigs.
Ivy 09/13/05 10:44 am An osprey is still on the nest, possibly putting off that inevitable migration due to the lovely weather we've been having in the northeast the past week.
cathleen 09/13/05 06:27 pm I saw the young osprey on the nest with a fat fish this afternoon and was thinking the same thing - why move when it's still so warm and the fish are so fat? The Conn. chick seems the last to leave of all the various nest locations I had been following...
