Location: The Landings, Skidaway Island
These cameras follow ospreys nesting beside the Palmetto golf course at The Landings, a community on Skidaway Island near Savannah.
This year, the ospreys used a nest built by cam operators and volunteers in fall 2019, after the old nest tree, which died, had to be cut down. The female laid four eggs in March (one was buried in the nest and rejected). The three viable eggs hatched between April 16 and 21. Unfortunately, the third chick died a few days after hatching. The surviving chicks fledged on June 16. The parents will continue to feed them for a few weeks. Stay tuned!
In 2019, ospreys laid three eggs in March. All hatched and the young fledged in June.
Ospreys have used the site since 2017. Using the original nest built by bald eagles, great horned owls raised two owlets each in 2015 and 2016.
