Ospreys 2007

This is the banding of two osprey nests in the New London area. We could not do the third nest this year because of politics.

Again our climber was Dan Verhagen from Appleton. His company again gave their assistance in this project. Without out Dan and Great Lakes Line Builders we could not move forward with this project. This year, 2008, Great Lakes again is going to erect two more platforms in the New London area. Stay tuned for a great time with Ospreys....................



In 2007 the ospreys came back on the 27th March. They start to rebuild the moment they come back. The following photos are some of the events that take place in the life of these birds and their young.
