Clearwater Audubon Society Schedules Monthly Meeting
The Clearwater Audubon Society has scheduling their monthly meeting for Monday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. The meeting is free to attend and will be held at the Moccasin Lake Nature Park (2750 Park Trail Lane, Clearwater.) The guest speaker at this meeting will be Barb Walker.
Please join us for a look at the one of the densest urban populations of Ospreys in Florida, North Pinellas. Do you wonder which nest is at the highest altitude, which is in the strangest place, or which is the biggest? How many Osprey nests there are? What the nesting habits and success rates are for Osprey? Maybe you are interested in the migratory patterns of Osprey in Florida as well as other parts of the country. If any of this describes your curiosity then this is the program for you!
Osprey are extremely entertaining and one of our most well loved birds. The program will highlight several reports: Partial Migration and Wintering Use of Florida by Ospreys, Status and Distribution of Breeding Ospreys in the Chesapeake Bay, and Osprey migration satellite tracking. We will talk about threats to Osprey populations in Florida and along migratory routes. We will explore several unusual aspects of Osprey nesting habits in Northern Pinellas County and make sure you know when you leave exactly why Osprey are so amazing.
