Dunedin, FL Osprey ..2018 & 2019

Post by IrishEyes » Fri Mar 02, 2018 8:14 pm

Welcome to the 2018 Season of the Dunedin Osprey Nest..

No Cam since 2016...... .. Read Here

So now we follow this nest now with thanks to our ground observers on the Dunedin Face book :)

https://www.facebook.com/StirlingandPin ... 1944598955

Thank so much Jean, Nancy and Kim for keeping us in touch with beautiful family via Face book.

The nest/platform is located on the Pinellas Trail near the Dunedin Stirling Links Golf Course in Pinellas County Florida.
The location is perfect because this is a heavily used trail for walkers, joggers and bikers. This makes for easy viewing from the ground for the public. Since education is a major part of this project, its location is easy for school groups, scout groups, etc. to visit.

2012 Summary:
Eggs Laid:
February 17, February 20, February 23.
Eggs Hatched:
March 27, March 30. Third egg did not hatch.
Lost Chick 2 overnight April 14.
Chick Fledged:
June 6 @ 6:47am

2013
3 eggs..all hatched .

Sad News:
#3 died May 4 - it's not easy for the youngest chick to get enough food to thrive
#2 disappeared late May 7 or early May 8 - he/she seemed less active on Tuesday so may have died of natural causes or lack of food, but the nest notes say there's also a chance one of the chicks was taken by a predator
#1 died June 10 after being removed from the nest for banding; the chick was small for its age, and might have had a weak heart; a necropsy is planned to determine the cause of death

2014
2 eggs...One hatched and chick fledged successfully
2015pm
2 eggs ...both hatched and chicks fledged successfully

2015
3 eggs..2 hatched and chicks fledged successfully.

2016
3eggs... 3 hatched..Sadly one was pushed of the nest. One fell out and was rescued and the oldest one fledged

2017
2 eggs...both hatched and chicks fledged successfully.

2018
3 eggs .. 3 hatched. .. No other news ... :(

2019
3 chicks .. all look healthy :rh: No other news ~ :(

Stirling & Pinella have three chicks! All seem very healthy and were being fed by Pinella a few minutes ago. 💖 Stirling brought in a medium fish for Pinella and the chicks, perched at the nest for about 40 minutes, then left to go fishing again

Very exciting news! I stopped by the nest this morning and saw THREE chicks being fed by Pinella, and Stirling was guarding his family on the south perch. They all looked wonderful and healthy! I didn't have my camera on me, unfortunately, but will make sure I get out there tomorrow morning to snap some photos for you all. So exciting!

Here are a couple photos of Pinella from 4-2-2019.\
