Nesting Diaries

01/15/2016 by QUISHI
Hi friends, In mid January, I saw 2 ospreys standing on '' my '' nest at Dove Creek Lodge. They both left after 10 minutes. But I was expecting to be able to observe very soon a nest when Young Ospreys will be living for a while. When I came back, 3 days later, there was a Great Horned Owl standing on the side of the nest. The day after, in the morning, before sunrise, the Owl was still standind on the the side of the nest.....but this time, some minutes later, I saw and filmed an Osprey making a pass at full speed at the Owl. After the third pass the Owl decided to hide in coconut tree not too far. ( I took many pictures when he was trying to hide ). Then the Osprey land on the nest. After 5 minutes, I heard the call from an another Osprey, who was far away but continued to call until he was on the nest ! I thaught, then, that the 2 Osprey establish their dominance and made the nest their property !!! But I was wrong ! When I came back on the Jan 23rd, the Owl was sleeping laying dow in the nest. So I concluded that, in reality, the Owl won the nest !!! And the facts prooved me right later. ( See in my next report )
