Opsrey Are Arriving On Delmarva
During the beach clean up on Sunday we observed an osprey picking up nest building materials. The nest was in front of the maintenance area at naval crossing, and you can’t see the nest unless you are on the beach, south of naval crossing. It was great to see our favorite fish finders arrive.
That is surely a sign of better things to come for spring and fishing. Bird watchers are starting to see them all over the county.
Osprey typically start arriving in Delmarva around St Patty’s day weekend every year. We do have a few holdovers that stay here year round.
One osprey is already on the Osprey cam nest, reported Cape Henlopen State Park today. You can see them on the osprey cam on the Delaware State Park website. This is a really cool way to watch a mated pair of osprey lay eggs, watch the eggs hatch, and then see the babies grow.
You can also take tagging tours with the Cape Water Tours and Taxi crew, they will have a schedule up soon of their osprey tagging trips.
