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 nested there this year, hatching two of three eggs. The first chick fledged on June 11. The second died of unknown causes May 2. The fledgling and adults will be seen at the nest less often as the young bird grows.
Note: The site has three cams. Two are streamed here; the third is available at The Landings bird cam homepage.
Background: Using a nest built by bald eagles, the owls raised two owlets each in 2015 and 2016. Ospreys nested there in 2017. But only one of their three eggs hatched, and another adult osprey killed the chick.
