Bald eagle attacks Steve. Hog Island Ospreys. 18.46 / 28 May 2019
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jffc3zmlWw


:ohmy: :angry: :luck:

Update from https://explore.org/livecams/ospreys/osprey-nest
First things first: We are still waiting for Steve's return. He, most probably, spent the night in his favorite roosting tree, nearby. On bad weather days he is always late on the nest, very often first seen in the afternoon. So stay positive: trust Nature, trust Osprey!

Well, yesterday, Bald eagles were dominating the action around Hog Island. At first, a juvenile visited the BH nest, leaving it in a mess.
Later, in the evening, Steve returned with a fish, but hesitated to deliver it directly to Rachel. He most probably was aware of the eagle, nearby. Keep in mind, that we heard eagles around all these days. When Steve finally was ready to settle on the eggs, the eagle approached the nest from below. Steve tried to fend it off. Both got entangled with each other and flew off the nest. After being separated, Steve flew smoothly off to the right, following the eagle, indicating that he is OK. Such fights are not unusual. They happen all the time, since eagles are opportunistic hunters, going after the prey ospreys and other raptors catch.

29 May. 11h06 am no sight on Steve yet

Not at all Heather, it's not my thread nor my video :huggie:
About Steve in my mind i think Steve were trying to jump down as an escape versus the BE but not enougth quick, the BE has its speed for it and Steve was almost stopped.
I saw the same reaction in a video 3 years ago when youngs were caught by BE in this nest too, one was safe by jumping down from the nest, the poor one in the nest was not so lucky...

Hog Island Ospreys ~ A Great Horned Owl (GHO) Takes Osprey Chick From Nest w/ SLO MO! 7.25.19
Early this morning at 2:02 AM A Great Horned Owl flew in and grabs one of the osprey chicks and flies off with it. Rachel saw it coming but was unable to reach the nest in time to save her baby. I am very sorry to report another loss at this nest and deeply saddened. I believe the owl took the youngest chick - Dion. In regular time and slo mo. Thank you for watching!

04-24-2020 Rachel is not back

04-12-2020 Steve is back

The last news, a new female is in the nest wit Steve, mating and bonding, a new family…

Last year, during the banding session of Halley and Dion, Rachel was chased away from his nest by scientists…
During that time we don't know what happened exactly, confrontation with another osprey or bald eagle or an accident but she returned wit her left leg with a very bad injury.
After that she had many difficulies to branch, to walk, to feed and to defend her osplets. A GHO took away Dion as Rachel was not enought reactive to intercept it. When Halley flew, Rachel began her migration. I already knew that there would only be a slim luck to see her the next season. The new season is here, Rachel not yet. So i'm prepared for the worse now.
I don't know what to write in the letter i will send to Bailey… next. :ohmy: :( :brknhrt:

Rachel, Bailey's mother didn't come back this season at Hog Island osprey nest. Ma.

she was injured last year and was not able to use her left leg as she wanted. After the flight of her last osplet, Halley, she left the area 09-03-2019.
A that time, i said her "Adieu Queen of Hog Island! " as i was sure it was the last time i saw her. Wherever your are, rip sweet Mom. :( :cry1:

Kathie Davis made a beautiful Tribute to her.

Yesterday Lady the new mate laid a second egg. She didn't brood yesterday night, jus back a little more after 04h am with Steve.

After the GHO yesterday, this early morning, as Lady was brooding, a bald eagle visited the nest. no problem for Lady who flew away and for the eggs. The BE was searching fishes may be. But another time if there is osplets in the nest ….Pics from the video.
