WELCOME TO THE 2014 SEASON OF THE DUNROVIN OSPREY NEST


March 16, 2014.

Hello Heiko and Beverly,
Last week we worked with Cornell to provide them with the link to our free
public site for our osprey web camera: www.DunrovinOsprey.net. Please refer
everyone who wants to keep up with Ozzie and Harriet to that site.

Thank you, Beverly, for tracking us down!

Heiko, perhaps you would put that address on the Osprey Cams Facebook so
that people can find us. Thanks.

SuzAnne M Miller
Owner, Dunrovin Ranch

Thank you HWF for featuring it on your web site along with a nest thread where we can post our observations, scaps and videos......giving us the opportunity to learn about these beautiful birds....

This nest is located on a 45 foot cedar pole in the middle of SuzAnne Miller's Ranch in Lolo, Montana along the Bitterroot River.

Link to the 2013 Nesting Season...HERE

This thread is for scaps, videos and observations of the Osprey..Please limit smileys to three per post....No enhanched scaps..........Thank You and Enjoy!

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.

Chicks fledge between 53 and 60 days old....

I asked Jazzel ..our Resident Expert on Osprey for some educational links on Osprey... I will post them here so all of us can refer to them..... with much thanks to Jazzel..hug


Hi Bev,

I have some information for you on fledgling fishing. I included links to hacking…hacking proves that fledglings don't need adults to learn to fish. Also, the links to Rob Bierregaard's websites, tons of information, you just need to navigate through all his drop down menus. I'll send more links, but this should keep you busy for now. I also highly recommend these books, A Life Of Ospreys by Roy Dennis (Amazon), The Rutland Water Ospreys by Tim Mackrill (www.bloomsbury.com), The Scottish Ospreys by Phillip Brown (Amazon).

Hugs Linda

When osprey chicks hatch, they are covered in white down with brown streaks on the face, back, and wings. This is replaced by charcoal-colored down after approximately 10 days. Feathers begin to replace the down at approximately two weeks. By one month after hatching, chicks have reached 70 to 80% of the adult size. Osprey chicks fledge between 48 and 76 days old. Generally, chicks in migratory populations fledge sooner than those in non-migratory populations. After fledging, young ospreys begin to hunt on their own. However, they often continue to return to the nest to receive food from their parents for two to eight weeks after fledging. Because ospreys migrate individually, juvenile ospreys must be fully independent of their parents by the time the southward migration begins. (Poole, 1989; Poole, 1994)
