Osprey Fledgling Report 2022

The 2022 Osprey Fledgling Count was taken July 15 and July 16, 2022 by Todd McCormack (M) and Andrew Edwards (A) with their drones and witnessed by Jim Baker (B) and Ken Edwards, Sr.

Ken Edwards reports: 25 active sites (with birds) were visited in July 2022 with 26 fledglings sighted on 16 sites. This is compared to 28 fledglings sighted in 2021 at 21 active sites. In April 2022 some adults looked like they were nesting but for some reason, they left – not sure as to why.
