Tiger 04/05/05 05:18 pm Remember how we evaluated the skills of Dennis shortly after he arrived??

We had four criteria and with the exception of nest building he was thought to be a bit weak!

If Dennis were to ask for a new evaluation I guess he would do rather better now!

How would he rate now on:

1. Defending the nest

2. Building the nest

3. Supplying fish to the female

4. Copulating with the female
Marie 04/05/05 05:55 pm I recon he is doing very well.......
We have seen a real development of skills over the past few days. I think this young Osprey means business. He's found a mate and he plans on keeping her. I say 8 out of 10 in three catagories, but 10 out of 10 for nest building.
Celeste 04/06/05 06:10 am Yes he has improved.....nest building "10"
Defending.....agree with Marie
fish.....too early....true test will be when there are chicks though at this point I agree with Marie again.
and 9 for copulating....though after chicks are hatched I will give him a 10!!!
Cecilia 04/06/05 07:33 pm Ah, come on...after yesterday I think we have to give him a 10 for copulation. He's relentless and there is no doubt that he now has the technique down pat :-) He still seems a little stingy with fish - both in bringing them in and giving them up...so I'd give him a 7 there, and an 8 for defending and nest building.
John 04/06/05 11:12 pm sheesh.... all i can say right now is I'm glad i'm not a guy osprey with a camera on me.
Cecilia 04/07/05 12:26 pm We're not so critical with people :-)
