Hog Island Rachel, Steve and Bailey's nest
05-26-2020
After the last attack and for the second consecutive night, neither Lady nor Steve are brooding the 3 eggs. They will be back incubating at the first daylights but not enought time for the eggs.
So the season is almost finished for this nest now.
a sad one,
1st: Rachel didn't come back :brknhrt:
2nd: 3 eggs left for Parents's safety :(
04h01

It is the second consecutive night that Phoebe (aka Lady) spent a big part of the night on her (non viable eggs, for me) after the last GHO attacks.

Tonight the GHO came back with the only aim to kill Phoebe.
Phoebe was strong enougth to leave :thumlft:

Philjo, that great horned owl needs to go anywhere else than this nest!

Hi Carolyn
Phoebe wasn't seen yesterday, too scary for sure. Steve was on the eggs during daylight.

Season is over, Steve and Phoebe don't stay on their eggs now even during the day, one is in the nest, one was broken and another one is outside the bowl, part of the nest. After the owls attacks the 3 eggs was covered only during day time and so may be it's a luck no one hatched...
11h ago at around 14h00, Phoebe/Steve? came in the nest and then flew away

Phoebe seemed to be away many days ago,
Steve was last seen 09-08-2020 at 08h32. Pic from "Hog Island Osprey Nest" https://www.facebook.com/groups/1274877219274993 thanks to Laurie Cody

They never rest in their nest during the night after the multiple owls attacks. They only came during day time until the last day they were present in the area.


Tonight around 20h/21h, again, the owls visited the nest, not a good message for the next season :(

At 15h35 Steve arrived !

Personal thoughts

Considering the way last season went, then the back season with these GHOs who have visited this nest so often, I was secretly hoping that Steve did not come back or even that the specialists decide to remove this nest from this island.
This is not the case so I only wish that Steve did not return at his peril because it was found that only Rachel was able to stand up against these GHOs with strength and courage.
But Rachel is no longer ... Rip sweetie.


Result, this early morning two GHO visited the nest, so sad already

I agree with you Philjo....this is just not a healthy place for the nest.
