As a courtesy to viewers with slower internet connections, please limit the pictures in each post to no more than a total of 150,000 bytes (150KB), and please do not post animations (though it's fine to post a link to them). To avoid horizontal scrolling, please do not post pictures that are more than 500 pixels wide - though it's fine to post a 500-pixel-wide thumbnail that clicks to a much larger picture. The forum attachment software conveniently handles that task - so you can attach larger pictures, and a properly-sized clickable image will appear in your post. The preferred format for pictures is JPEG (.jpg), and three 500-pixel-wide JPEGs should be under the 150KB limit

Report from H .Langner.. umontana.edu.
Here is what I know about Harriet and Ozzie: We don't have definite data as the adults at Dunrovin Ranch are not banded. Harriet may have been at Dunrovin for a number of years, but I think the male changed early in the breeding season of 2011. The female started with one male, before all birds disappeared for several days, and then the female showed up again with a different male. I suspect there was some event such as them getting attacked by an eagle where the male either got killed or driven away. We will never find out.

In 2011 The pair raised two chicks.. both chicks fledge but unfortunately one died .

Report from H. Langner...

C49 later died after being found standing in shallow water of the Bitterroot River close to home. I have 9/20/2011 for a sampling date, although I don't remember when it actually was found and died. Our guess is that it injured itself on a dive into water that was too shallow.

In 2012 the pair had two eggs... neither egg hatched.:cry1:... we are still waiting to hear the final results of the egg analysis ...one egg was accidentally broken before it was retrieved..

Hi all,
It's almost time for the ospreys to arrive! The first birds should show up toward the end of March. Both Dunrovin and Hellgate nest cameras are now back online again. Erick, I, our friends at the Cornell Bird Lab and of course the hosts of the cameras at Riverside Health Care Center and Dunrovin Ranch are working to make everybody's interactive experience as successful or better than last year, preferably with a little less time commitment from the two of us. Stay tuned!
Dr. Heiko Langner, Dr. Erick Greene
