Cecilia 05/27/05 09:41 am Well...I figured what have I got to loose?...I'm going to find Alan Poole and tell him about our nest :-) I tracked him down, came up with an email address and wrote him a letter telling him about the DPOF and our incredible live video cam. The dear, gracious man responded!!! Here is his letter:



Cecilia --



Thanks for kind words on the book (glad you are finding it useful) and for the heads up on your website. Quick glance tells me you've done a fine job there. I have fond memories of Dennis -- knew him from Osprey-watching days on Gardiner's Island in the 70s.



No revision planned for the book, but as I edit the Birds of North America (BNA) series (now online; http://bna.birds.cornell.edu/BNA/), new observations are going in there. Don't know if you've seen the Osprey account I wrote for BNA, but it includes many updates from the 1989 book. BNA is available for a modest subscription cost. You might check out the Osprey account there, and pass the word along to your Osprey observers via your website. Soon BNA will be able to gather and incorporate new observations such as those you and your nest-watchers are noting; stay tuned on that -- we'd welcome your input.



I continue to help monitor the Westport River (se. Mass) Osprey colony, where we have >70 nests in a small area, and where I keep a summer/weekend home. Very satisfying to have this strong colony continuing.



Best of luck with your efforts; please keep me posted. Alan Poole
