Re: Ospreys

You may find this link of interest. There is an ornithologist named Bob Kennedy who has been tracking Ospreys for a couple of years, starting in Nantucket and more recently in Jamaica Bay. He attaches a small GPS receiver and can track them on their migration. Amazing birds. If you go to the link you can follow the one from Jamaica Bay, which migrated to Colombia for the winter, including a 20 hour flight of 485 miles at one point. See Osprey's Journey |
