All three osprey in our study have begun migrating to their wintering territories. Jett left Virginia Beach 9/5, Rice left Hopewell 9/13, and Thurston left 9/17 from Virginia Beach.
Rice continues to make steady progress south and is near Palatka, FL.
Jett continues to fly southeast through Mainland Cuba. Please consider adopting Jett through our tracking partners at wildlifetracking.org
Thurston finally left Virginia Beach Tuesday morning following a similar trajectory as Jett. He is the last bird in our study to initiate migration, a full 12 days after the first osprey, Jett, migrated south. Please consider adopting Thurston through our tracking partners at wildlifetracking.org
