Thread subject: Great article about head bobbing
Name Date Message
Shelley 08/24/13 09:13 am I found the link to this blog post when I logged in to the Dunrovin site this morning:

head bobbing
Nancy L 08/24/13 02:50 pm Interesting.
Anne-UK1 08/25/13 05:07 pm Yes, interesting stuff.

A friend of my brother's had been over protected as a baby. For some reason his mother didn't allow him the freedom to crawl around at will and he simply didn't develop the ability to judge distances, which caused him real difficulties in life. So that article makes a lot of sense to me. Luckily for ospreys, I don't think there's any way an adult could stop youngsters bobbing their heads!
FOB Webmaster 08/27/13 12:54 pm So I wonder how to tell the difference between when they're bobbing to judge distance and bobbing to "put over" the contents of their crop:

Nancy L 08/27/13 01:41 pm Oh, that was a great little video.
Anne-UK1 08/27/13 05:17 pm Well if you don't know Lisa, I'm sure I don't. I can see us all spending hours now studying head bobbing!
FOB Webmaster 08/27/13 07:24 pm Too bad we can't ask them: "Hey, whatcha doin?" :-)
