[CT Birds] Greenwich Tod's Point Osprey update June 12

June 12 very windy, sunny day. I arrived just as feeding finished. I saw the chicks settle down and for the two hours I was there, did not see them again. Instead, Mr. O delivered a fish, and an oak branch. Not an exciting day, but good to see the parents continue to upgrade the nest.

The humming bird was on her nest, but no news to report.

At my home, there were 4 Ravens flying from East to West. They have been in the neighborhood all spring, but whereabouts of nest is unknown.

I just walked the length of Rt 113 through Great Meadows marsh in Stratford. I 
did not see Miley's Common Gallinule of yesterday, but did see a female Hooded 
Merganser ( rare here at this season), 9 Yellow-crowned Night-Herons, 18 
Willets, 3 Marsh Wrens, 9 Seaside Sparrows (surprisingly no Saltmarsh), and 15 
Diamond-backed Terrapins.

After yesterday's washout, I was able to see clearly two chicks feeding on the 
Tod's Point Eagle Pond nest today.
Male was sitting on the nest as female did the feeding. I arrived at ~10:40 am, 
and they were feeding then. It continued until I left around 11:30. Both seem 
active and hungry. Hope to continue to observe their growth.

Please understand I'm about 500 feet from the nest, so really sharp pix are 
tough with such small subjects.

Years ago my hummingbird feeder was ripped up & emptied by the neighbor's 
monkey.  This probably is uncommon.


Can't help it, except for a House Wren I spotted a few weeks ago, I've no 
interesting bird stuff to mention.

I just was emailed a not from Meredith in Old Greenwich who asked if there was a 

plan in place to move the babies. I just found out the eggs have hatched and the 

mama killdeer is near heart attack covering the babies. One of the brood is 
venturing from the nest.

Should something be done?
And what?

Joe

Roy,

May I suggest placing sand or something that will make tracks under the 
Hummingbird feeder.
That will answer the mammal theory.

Flour would work very nicely providing more detailed prints.Do it when rain is 
not expected.
