We are tracking an Osprey from her nest site near the Grand Lake area. We
named her Shadow because her nest was on the shore of Shadow Mountain
Reservoir. We also tracked her in 2013 but the satellite tracking device
fell off just before 2014 spring migration. We were happy to recapture her
again in June of 2016 and see that she is doing fine and now we have
tracked her south to her wintering site again.
We received location fixes for Shadow through noon on September 17th this
morning. She seems happy at Laguna Madre and has moved little since last
report on the 14th.
For fun I added Shadow's location fixes from late September through October
2013 to the map so you can see where she spent time that fall. Many
migration research projects show that birds are faithful to their breeding
sites and also wintering sites as long as the habitat they require remains.
