On July 17 I was on the Lynnhaven River in Virginia Beach finishing up the 2014 banding and survey of Osprey by the Center for Conservation Biology and the Virginia Aquarium. One of my goals was to find Grace and her sister somewhere near her nest territory. Grace had other plans! She was not there. As it turns out, satellite data shows that she was making her most far away flight from home (about 4 miles) to Brown Cove in Great Neck – one of Camellia’s favorite places.
Thanks to Woody Stephens for providing photos of Grace as she visited Thalia Point yesterday afternoon, July 21. Satellite data shows that Grace has visited there several times in the past two weeks. Thalia Point is about 1/2 mile from her nest.
