Savannah Georgia Osprey Nest - 2019 Season

Post by sassyk » Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:50 pm

Welcome to the Savannah Georgia Osprey nest for the 2019 season. This is an abandoned eagle nest adjacent to a protected, nutrient-rich salt marsh along the Georgia coast. The nest sits nearly 80 ft. above one of the six Audubon International Certified golf courses at The Landings, on Skidaway Island, near Savannah, Georgia. Some info on this nest from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology site here . Be sure to watch Cornell Osprey's videos posted on the page under the cam view. Many thanks to Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Skidaway Audubon for providing us with a wonderful opportunity to view the osprey family.

Over the past years there has been a pair of Great Horned Owls raising young in this nest. Unfortunately there was considerable damage done to the nest tree caused by storms and the cam was reattached to a platform attached to the nest. A pair of Osprey have frequented the nest for quite awhile and it looks like they are getting serious about setting up house. They have both been busy fixing up the nest and protecting 'their' territory. I am looking forward to seeing little oslets in this nest in the next few months.

Some interesting info on osprey on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology All About Birds site here.
