Location: The Landings, Skidaway Island
These cameras beside the Palmetto golf course at The Landings, a community on Skidaway Island near Savannah, have followed great horned owls and ospreys. Using a nest built by bald eagles, the owls raised two owlets in 2015 and two in 2016. However, in 2017 ospreys moved in and laid three eggs, one of which hatched. An attack by another adult osprey mortally injured the chick in May. Since, owls, ospreys and even eagles have visited the nest. Stay tuned to see who uses it next!
Note: In September 2016, with the pine tree holding the two nest cameras dead and shedding limbs, operators at The Landings took down the cams, attached a bracket to support the cam on the nest tree, moved the second cam to a nearby pine and added a third cam to that tree. Two of the cams are streamed here; the third is available at The Landings bird cam homepage.
