Thread subject: Birder's World Osprey Article
||07/10/10 03:38 pm
||Anyone else see the Pete Dunne osprey article.
Some interesting tidbits. He's seen ospreys steal fish from immature eagles and he's seen what he believed to be an osprey carrying a muskrat. Finally he saw an angry osprey (angry about banders at the nest) kill a black crowned night heron that flew too close to the nest.

||I alluded to t his article the other day, when I saw a preview of it in my online Birder's World subscription. I have yet to go out and purchase the actual magazine.
Pete Dunne is one of my favourite nature/birding writers. I have several of his books. Have you read anything else of his?

||Sorry -- yes, I started a new thread only because the other one had moved to the second page.
I've read a few of his books -- I think, "The Feather Quest," "The Wind Masters," and "Hawks in Flight."

||I recently read *Golden Wings*, and the first I ever read had the unwieldy title of: *Small-Headed Flycatcher. Seen Yesterday, He Didn't Leave His Name.* That was the one that got me hooked on Dunne! I have Feather Quest but haven't read it yet.

||Tales of a Low Rent Birder is very enjoyable, too. However, unless you have a subscription to the magazine you cannot read the article on-line.
My first banding trip we saw the male dive bomb a great blue heron and knock him off his log. The heron lived to tell the tale.

||That reminds me - Lisa's posted some very similar photos to that on her latest osprey web cam page. The second shot makes me laugh - the heron seems to have dropped his jaw in horror at the realisation of what's about to hit him!
She's also included a link to a Chesapeake blog. If anyone's not seen this it's a really good read and well worth taking a look.
