Tweed Valley osprey chicks 'succumb to cold' (Scotland)


Ospreys have returned to the Tweed Valley for the past decade to mate

A Borders osprey project has suffered a setback after all three chicks in a nest it was monitoring died.

It is thought they succumbed to the cold after the female bird disappeared for three days.

Volunteers reported that the male "did his best" to keep the chicks alive but they were dead in the nest on Friday afternoon.

3 entangled ospreys rescued by Mid-Columbia wildlife workers (somewhere in the Pacific Northwest)


An adult and two osprey chicks along the Snake River have been rescued by local wildlife workers after the adult became tangled in fishing netting last week.

It's the fifth time in three years that U.S. Fish and Wildlife has rescued osprey that would have died after becoming tangled in trash, usually discarded fishing line or netting, said Dan Haas, a biologist with the Mid-Columbia River National Wildlife Refuge Complex.

"Who knows how many are dying without ever being discovered?" Haas said.

Instances of owls becoming trapped in discarded fishing line along the Columbia River also have been reported in recent weeks, with a great horned owl dying on an island near Richland, according to Fish and Wildlife.

Research by the University of Montana has estimated that 10 percent of osprey die annually from entanglement in twine or fishing line. They and other birds may use twine or netting in their nests and can get a talon trapped in the nest, in addition to trailing caught line and getting tethered to branches.

"One discarded net ruined an entire nest," Haas said. "I don't think people realize just how deadly these materials can be to wildlife."


* Please be sure to read the story of the rescue--these folks went out of their way to save this osprey family!!

The Harrison Mills nest near Vancouver had three babies, but the third one was quite small, as you can see. Unfortunately, it has died.
