Location: The Landings, Skidaway Island
These cameras have followed ospreys and great horned owls nesting beside the Palmetto golf course at The Landings, a community on Skidaway Island near Savannah.
Ospreys nesting here in 2019 laid three eggs in March, all of which hatched and the young fledged in June. Because the old nest tree was dead and had to be cut down in fall 2019, cam operators and volunteers built a replacement nest in an adjacent tree. The hope is ospreys or other birds of prey use the new nest this season. Stay tuned!
Background: Using a nest built by bald eagles, owls raised two owlets each in 2015 and 2016. Ospreys nested at the site from 2017 through 2019.
