The ospreys are on the move this month! Our first bird left September 5 and is currently in Cuba. Read more below for details on each bird.
Jett began migrating south on September 5th keeping to the coast of the Carolinas and Georgia before flying due south to the Florida Keys. He reached Naples, FL on the Gulf Coast and then skirted the edge of the Everglades before launching off of Boot Key. He crossed the Gulf of Mexico in 5 hours making landfall East of Havana.
Rice left on September 13th and took a more inland route south but met with Jett’s path at the South Carolina coast. The transmitters send us data every three days so we expect him to be in the Caribbean on the next transmission.
Thurston continues to remain in Virginia Beach. We expect him to migrate any day now.
