Melanie 10/23/07 09:41 am Greetings,
Our first Osprey has landed in South America. Claws (who decided to start migrating again) or Homer?
Find out at the USUAL SPOT:
(If you follow Homer's maps from the start of migration you may have to hit the "refresh" button on your browser when you get to the map that has him in Nassau.)

With the Red Sox in the Series, Luke may never leave Boston! Homer and Claws are the only birds with new maps. Everyone else seems to be safe and sound.
FOB Webmaster 10/23/07 01:04 pm Melanie -- how do you get on his mailing list?
Melanie 10/23/07 01:08 pm There is a not very conspicuous line buried in the text - it says:

If you would like to be included in an email list to receive a notice each time maps are updated, send me an e-mail: rbierreg@uncc.edu
FOB Webmaster 10/23/07 02:53 pm Thanks!
cathy 10/23/07 02:55 pm Although it might be a burden these ospreys have to bear (wearing a satellite transmitter) - we certainly learn alot about these birds from this data. I also like to read his affectionate comments.
Matt 10/23/07 05:08 pm Is it possible that an Osprey (such as Luke) could winter in Boston?
FOB Webmaster 10/23/07 05:10 pm I have a friend who photographs eagles around the Susquehanna River, and he says they have an osprey nest there with a young bird still hanging around.

I suspect the unusually warm fall is possibly delaying some of these inexperienced birds.

Boston normally gets really cold. I can't imagine an osprey there being able to find food throughout the winter.
Melanie 10/23/07 11:33 pm My brother-in-law used to manage a grocery store up where Luke is hanging out just outside of Westminster MA. The elevation is rising at that point and the Rte 2 corridor is generally the snow demarcation line, It probably gets colder there than it does in Boston. Those ponds WILL freeze over at some point and stay frozen over for probably 4-6 weeks.

I'm not sure how good it would be for Luke's genes to get into the pool.
