Name Date Message
BOB4 03/17/11 09:27 pm A man made nest put up (5) years ago has some tenants. Always good to see something "man" has done with a happy ending..

Pam 03/18/11 06:45 pm Interesting...in fact the Great Horned Owl eggs look just like golf balls :-))) Here is a link to the Kentucky nest cam, an Osprey nest taken over by Great Horneds. A beautiful view of the two eggs right now.

Pam 03/18/11 06:50 pm I tried to edit my above message but could not - it said I was not the owner or the message did not exist, neither of which is true. Anyway...here is a quick link (hopefully)

Celeste 03/19/11 05:18 am Thanks Bob, always nice to know things like this are happening on the Island!
Great shots as always Pam:-)
SamiS 03/21/11 05:56 am There is only one egg left in the KEEP nest which may not be viable because the GHO was more off than on the eggs. One of the eggs cracked and was disposed of by the GHO.



The returning ospreys have opted to build their nest in a tree that is exposed to storms :-( Hope that fair weather prevails throughout the O season!
Pam 03/21/11 08:51 am Thanks for that information SamiS.
