The Great Bay Discovery Center has been enjoying a pair of ospreys on the edge of the property for close to a decade now. This year’s pair of ospreys is incubating 3 eggs and now occupy the new nest and yesterday, under ideal conditions, Reserve staff Beth Heckman and Kelle Loughlin joined Ornithologist Robert S. Kennedy, Ph.D (Bob) in the marsh to band the adult pair.
So if you are someone that read my last blog post and decided to take me up on my invitation, I hope it has been bringing you comfort and a little bit of joy. It is amazing how much things change day to day.
Reserve scientists and genetics researchers are teaming up to use DNA techniques to keep tabs on habitats and the critters that live there.
