Observing Ospreys

July 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

You may have noticed the many Osprey nests around the East End where the adult ospreys have been busy raising their young since the eggs hatched in late May or early June. The female does most of the incubating or sitting on the eggs, and the male brings fish for all of them. By early July, the oldest osprey chicks are big enough to start exercising their wing muscles while still on their nest. By late July, with their parents perched in a nearby tree whistling encouragement to the young birds, they begin to fly out of the nest under their own wing power. If we are lucky, we may see a fledgling stretching its wings on the edge of its nest!

Southampton Town Beach Parking Permit or daily parking fee required.

Walk Leader: Melanie Meade, SOFO Education Director
