2011 Osprey Cam Notes
Our osprey pair had a difficult 2011 season. Although three eggs were laid, no chicks hatched. This female (her second year nesting) has only hatched one bird, named Thatch, in 2010. Thatch was tagged with a satellite transmitter in 2010; below is a map of his 2010-2011 migration. He's due to return to Delaware in 2012. Follow his progress on Dr. Rob Bierregaard’s website
Male returned on March 19, 2011, and female on March 28, 2011.
Female laid three (3) eggs on April 24, April 29 and May 4.
None of the eggs hatched, and the female abandoned incubation on or about July 10, 2011 (expected hatch dates were between May 29 and July 1).
The Osprey Cam equipment was generously provided by The Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park.
