Estonian Osprey Nest ~Irma & Joosep~ (I&I)DOCUMENTATION 2015

Post by Bea » March 11th, 2015, 4:18 pm

This is the third camera-season for Irma & Ilmar´s nest.

Ilmar, the male, wears ring with letters AF

Irma, the female, has ring with letter/number U5
Both have metal rings on their right ankles, but designations are not readable in cam view

Image Image

Last year two chicks were raised, Elar (DI) and Aino (AR)
Image

Ospreys reach body heights of 50-66 cm, and wingspans of 1,27 - 1,74 m. Females are bigger than males.

- Winglength ♂ 448 bis 495 mm ♀ 470 bis 518 mm
- Weight ♂ 1,12 bis 1,74 kg ♀ 1,21 bis 2,05 kg

Usually two or three eggs are laid and incubated 36-41 days.
Young Ospreys fledge after 50-54 days.

Nest is located in South Estonia, not far from a fish farm. Natural river and ponds are in vicinity, too.

J3 black ring on left leg, silver ring on the right leg.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
