The Wilmington, NC (Shandy Point) Osprey web cam nest has a Great-horned Owl nesting. She has an egg!!



I emailed Rob Bierregaard about the GHO on the Osprey nest. I asked him if there would be a nasty fight when the Ospreys return, or will they look for a new nest site. His reply.

"Pretty safe bet that they'll look for a new location. NOBODY messes with Great-horned Owls."

Hi Sophwave

That's your call, but from Rob's reply...I guess it should be in the owl area. I'll be watching the cam for the ospreys (my main interest is Osprey). The ospreys returned to the nest Feb. 28 last season. I'll post any osprey sightings here. This is a sad situation for both the ospreys and the GHO. As you know this is not an ideal nest (to open) for the owls, and now a successful breeding osprey pair will be very stressed.

Humans don't leave much room for the animals, and this is the result, nature out of balance.NO

I just received this email from RobGrin


"Greetings,
I'm following in the wing tracks of our Ospreys down to the Dominican Republic, where I'll spend some time with Jorge Brocca, the Prez of the Hispaniola Ornithological Society, and our colleague on our "Don't shoot Ospreys, they don't eat chickens" campaign. Also, rather amazingly, I'm going to get Meadow's transmitter back! A week ago I got an email from someone who has had the transmitter for a year. Of course, they claim they found the bird dead, which is probably true. What's missing from the story is that there was probably smoke rising from the barrel of their rifle when they "found" the bird dead on the ground. So why wait a year to report it? Seems that they didn't understand what "REWARD" means (it's printed on the transmitter). Someone translated and they got in touch.
Seems that the Venezuelan National Guard has decided to hand over the American spy device, so we should be getting that one back soon. Isabel's transmitter is still transmitting, but has refused to turn up despite two trips to the pasture where it's signalling away. I think we'll find that one eventually. Along with Meadow's, Hix's, Katy's, and Bea's, we may have an amazing 5 PTTs to redeploy this summer. That's a pretty significant ($20,000) windfall. Yahoo.
Our birds are pretty boring at the moment, but at this time of year, boring is good. I updated all the maps (Buck, Penelope, Ozzie, Hudson, Mr. Hannah) for their January locations. The adults should be moving north sometime this month. Penelope is due for her first return, but the youngsters don't seem to get moving until later in the spring. Buck will be down there for another year.

Stay warm."
