Event Description: Monitoring Osprey Nests – Volunteers Needed
The Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife is seeking volunteers interested in monitoring the states Osprey population. We know that Delaware’s Osprey population has grown immensely so assistance with monitoring is definitely needed and will work in conjunction with the planned statewide survey which is scheduled to begin this year.

Osprey will become a common sight, beginning around mid-March, where nesting pairs will return and start to rebuild many of the nests used in 2013. Veteran volunteer monitors anxiously await the first signs of the Ospreys’ return when they can begin recording data that is collected at least every other week.

If you are interested in participating, attend the annual osprey monitoring workshop. Anthony Gonzon, wildlife biologist, will briefly describe the history of Osprey in Delaware, monitoring objectives and methods, and the future direction that this project will be taking. The meeting will be in Bombay Hook’s Auditorium.
