Why There Are No Ospreys at the Hog Island Nest Cam

Bailey's daring dive was just the start of a eventful weekend. As the vulnerable chick flopped around, it was whisked away by Eric Snyder, Hog Island facilities manager and seasoned raptor rescuer, to a second nesting site on the mainland. Snyder built the alternate “boathouse platform” last year to create a local Osprey network that could help Rachel and Steve defend against Bald Eagle attacks . Another pair nested there earlier this season, but they went M.I.A. after their sole egg failed to hatch. Moving Bailey to the boathouse would keep the bird close enough for Rachel and Steve to find and feed it, Snyder says. “There’s evidence that moving a chick—or even an egg—up to a quarter mile away will still allow the parents to attend to it.”
