Sedlacek CAYUGABIRDS-L;Thu 7:29 PM Inbox You forwarded this message on 3/31/2016 7:32 PM We stopped by the Treman Marina (#59) nest this evening after work and were happy to see both Ospreys back in the area with the female in the nest.
The male started to fish but was drawn away by a banded, adult Bald Eagle over the inlet near the marina. He gave chase with the eagle heading toward Jetty Woods. Another BE in the trees across from the jetty on the west side of the inlet caught the eye of the female and she engaged and ultimately drove it west along the southern shore, returning to the nest. The male caught a fish somewhere and re-engaged the first BE, pushing it west across the marina and the Hog Hole nest. The male Osprey then ate its fish on a pole along the hillside trail on the west side of RT89. Nests #60, 61, no Ospreys this evening. Nest #62 (Union Fields) had an Osprey in the nest as we were leaving ~5:30PM. Around 7:00PM we sighted an Osprey hover-fishing over Beebe Lake Karel V Sedlacek Senior Analyst, Consulting Services Alumni Affairs and Development Cornell University Work Phone: 607-254-3399 -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
