They are on the Way...


Interested in if there are any sightings in your area?  Check out Osprey-Watch, a project to engage a global community to collect data on breeding ospreys.

The project was launched by the Center for Conservation Biology and is intended to collect information on a large enough scale to be useful in addressing three of the most pressing issues facing aquatic ecosystems: global climate change, depletion of fish stocks, and environmental contaminants.

Osprey watch allows observers to map nests, log observations, upload photos, and interact with other Osprey lovers.

Guess who else is on the way? 

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds!

The first reports of these little jewels making their way across the Gulf of Mexico can be found here.  Visit Hummingbirds.net to report your first sighting!

Oh, I'm getting so excited!  Spring migration - bring it!
