Re: Estonian Osprey Nest (Irma & Ivo) 2018

Post by peterdriscoll »

As you know. Jaak's plastic Id ring slipped down from his leg capturing two fingers of his claw.

Possibly the plastic ring may drop off by itself, but maybe not. But if not methods should be considered now to capture Jaak so that the ring may be removed or replaced.

From a quick google I found the power snares may be used to capture ospreys.

Only for your consideration. I am not an expert on capturing raptors. Ideally an expert would be contacted.

Note:
The method of using power snares as described in the paper seems ideally suited to capturing Jaak in the nest. I can't force anybody to consider it but we will all be very sad if Jaak dies.

Where he has left his contact details.

Am Rosenhuegel 59
Krems, 3500 Austria

Email: mikemcgrady@hotmail.com

As simple as that, to follow up and find out if his methods will work to catch Jaak.

Good morning everyone!

Peterdriscoll, welcome to the forum!

Only on the previous page we got an answer about current situation from Urmas Sellis, Estonian ornithologist and our contact person for questions:
https://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/vie ... 55#p611755


Thank you for your research about trapping raptors. In 2013 forum member Jürgen (and member of Estonian Kotkaklubi) made a documentation about a try to catch an adult osprey:
https://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/vie ... 99#p260799

Adults can only be caught in certain time, when they have a nest/territory with nestlings that they defend. Juveniles can be equipped with rings in the nest only as long as they have not yet flegded.

Irma came down to the nest for a moment - then she was back to the cam support and continues hollering for fish up there

Today is August 19 .... and she is still here with us - but for how long?

So good to still see her today. It's a small consolation in this otherwise sad situation..

Irma´s complaints have been heard - a headless fish (Bream?) was delivered.
As Ivo had already his share from this fish (headless), Irma must have been seen him eating in a tree and for that she was probably already hollering so long :rolleyes:

I'm glad to read that Jaak got a fish. I scrolled back and saw, that he was able to handle and could eat it faster than yesterday evening, although Heli was blocking the view. I took some pics.

I think it looks much better! the ring is only on one claw! Bea or someone else who knows should take a look. :bow: I'm not good in that.

I'm surprised that the ring has not fallen off yet?

That looks very fine! Seems that the ring is only about ONE toe!

Hi Liz, I think the bow of the claw only holds the ring tight ...

It is still on the same 2 toes, but has come down a little. Looks like it is a LITTLE easier for XJ to handle.
