WELCOME TO THE 2015 SEASON OF THE DUNROVIN OSPREY NEST

Ozzie our Resident Male was found dead last year just as the season was almost over....... Harriet our Resident Female cont. to provide for the two chicks until they fledged....... Will Harriet return this year? Will she find a new mate?

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.

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....

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.

Incubation Period for eggs. 35 - 42 days.

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

I was not sure so I stayed really low,
He proved to be strong, he proved to be kind,
and most of all he proved to be mine.....

Welcome Heiko, my prince."
