The first Ospreys have begun returning to their nests in the twin cities area and Twin Cities Metro Osprey Watch needs your help. This is our annual plea to please report new nests or osprey activity in the eight county metro area to us. We are trying to monitor all know nests in Hennepin, Ramsey, Carver, Washington, Anoka, Wright, Dakota and Scott counties as part of a long term study on these raptors. We are also seeking volunteers to help monitor these nests. (132 known occupied nests last year, which included 13 new nests.) We are assembling our field teams now so If you are interested in helping us by checking a nest once a week through the breeding season, please contact Vanessa Greene at osprey...@gmail.com. You can find more info, including last years productivity and behavioral results, on our facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/Twin-Cities-Metro-Osprey-Watch-218968924786696/?ref=hl) or our blog... www.ospreywatch.blogspot.com Please feel free to share this post with anyone who might be interested in joining this research effort. Thanks!
