MIGRATION UPDATE FROM ROBGrin

"Good news from Map Central. Penelope is in South Carolina (at least). I've updated her maps and begun working on the 2010 Migration page: http://www.bioweb.uncc.edu/Bierregaard/migration10.htm

My trip to New England last week was pretty successful. We tagged a new adult male (Neale) in Rhode Island. This bird is a 4-yr old banded as a nestling on Block Island. On the Westport, we put Hudson's transmitter on a new male, named Sanford, and put Hix's recovered transmitter on an east-branch male, Gunny. Over on Nantucket, Bob Kennedy and I were unable to retrap Mr. Hannah, so he gets to wear the transmitter for another year. We were able to catch his neighbor, "Sr. Bones" (named by Nantucket's 1st graders-best Osprey name ever!).

No new maps for the newbies yet, but Penelope is up to date and I finally put the last few maps up for Ozzie, whose freeloading at a Cuban fish farm proved fatal."

Migration update today from RobGrin

"Penelope is in northern New Jersey. Once again she has made a turn in a surprising direction, turning inland from New Jersey's Atlantic coast, just when it looked like she was really homing in on her final destination.
She moved quickly up the east coast and is only a day or two short of arriving home on Martha's Vineyard. But she seems to have hit the pause button on migration again. So close....!
All the other birds are fine. Buck has definitely settled down in Venezuela. Hopefully, a year from now we'll be watching his homeward bound journey.
Our adult males, Neale, Sanford, Gunny, Mr. Hannah, and Sr. Bones, are all busy catching fish to feed their females as they incubate.
The only new maps on the website are Penelope's."
As usual: http://www.bioweb.uncc.edu/Bierregaard/migration10.htm

There are now two chicks at the Woolwich, Maine (BRI) osprey nest! Here's one of Sherri's pics from the Maine forum:


The Woolwich osprey were on the Channel 6 news this morning - here's the story and there's also a great video:
Out Ospreys nesting near mid-coast restaurant

(warning - there's a really loud ad before the story starts - have your mute button ready)

I loved the amazement of the folks at the restaurant when they realized there was a newly hatched chick! love (I also noticed that the number of people watching the cam jumped from a dozen or so yesterday to over 100 today - a good news story will do that.)
