Thread subject: Osprey Behavior
Name Date Message
Matt 03/26/05 07:26 pm From what i've been reading in the messages, the two Ospreys that are using the nest are not Betty and Dennis, right?

Does anyone know what their behavior would be if the two new ones started using the nest and then Betty and Dennis came back to the same nest? Would they fight for it or go off and find another nest?
Tiger 03/26/05 07:49 pm Yes I imagine that the old Dennis or the old Betty would drive off at least one of these imposters.

Mind you it is a dangerous thing to do because the imposter may fight and win as an osprey at Martha's vineyard found out!

First year it was late KC won but lost the replay and its life the next year.

Always a delight to go to these sites. Trouble is I never seem to copy right...Takes me a long time to actually find the info.....but that is because I am cyber challenged.....
