 2023 Season Summary

(March - September)

 

Female: Naha (arrived 03/22/2023)
Male: Bruce (arrived 03/24/2023)

 

From the very beginning, Bruce was all business... collecting and placing sticks, digging and cupping the bowl, mating and bringing fish.  He wants chicks, it seems. Naha has also escalated in her housekeeping... each day she seems a bit more bonded to the nest and it's structure.

We have seen no sign of Betty, the previous female.  We hope this means she has found another path with another partner..... she is a great Mom!  And we wish her success and happiness.

There has been minor intrusions on the nest of various species! (see Observation Board and Visual Observation Board)

 

Eggs Laid:
1st: 04/18/2023 at 08:30am
  2nd: 04/21/2023 at 09:08am
  3rd: 04/24/2023 at 12.57pm
   
Hatches: 1st:  did not hatch (dnh) (delayed Incubation, please see bold link below **)
  2nd: 05/28/2023     07:18 am (36 days 22 hours incubation) * HATCHED FIRST * Named 'Kawok' 06/20/2023.
  3rd:  05/30/2023     09.12pm (36 days 12 hours incubation) * HATCHED SECOND * Named 'Naika' 06/20/2023.
                 

(**Naha employed a delayed incubation technique, until 2nd egg laid. This is intended to allow the first two chicks to hatch closer together, to create less sibling rivalry, however this year the technique failed and resulted in dnh)

2022 Season Summary

(March - September)

 

Female: Naha (arrived 03/26/2022)
Male: Bruce (arrived 03/28/2022)

 

Betty, the previous year's female arrived very late (05/20/2022), about a month after 3 eggs were laid.  She repeatedly tried to land on the nest only to be routinely chased off, and Naha actually hauled her off the nest by the shoulders once!  Betty stayed near the nest all season, and made many attempts to land there.  (We wonder if both females will show up again in 2023??)

In July it became obvious that Betty was determined to stay in the nest area, so a vote was held for the chatters to name the new female.  Naha was chosen, a Chinook name for "Mother". (She had been previously referred to as Betty2)

 

Eggs Laid:
1st: 04/29/2022
  2nd: 05/02/2022
  3rd: 05/05/2022
   
Hatches: 1st:  06/07/2022     11:58pm (39.9 days incubation, includes delayed Incubation **) ... Named Tyee
  2nd: 06/08/2022     01:58pm approx. (37 days incubation) ... Named Katsuk
  3rd:  06/11/2022     05.26am approx. (37 days incubation) ... Called Titch
                 

(**Naha employed a delayed incubation technique, until 2nd egg laid. This allowed the first two chicks to hatch closer together, creating less sibling rivalry.) 

See the following link posted by Dyfi nest on the process of delayed incubation:   

https://www.dyfiospreyproject.com/blog/emyr-mwt/delayed-incubation-ospreys

 

Fledges: 1st: 08/04/2022    8:23:19 am    Tyee (58 days)    
  2nd: 08/05/2022    8.44.01 am    Katsuk (58 days) 
  3rd:  * (see below)

 

Last seen date (in date order):

Naha: 08/31/2022
Katsuk: 09/04/2022 circa (91 days old)
Bruce: 09/16/2022 (last seen on nest)
Tyee: 09/17/2022 am (103 days old)

 

Notable Events:

* 06/14/2022 Sadly, the 3rd chick did not survive an unfortunate incident on the nest. As Naha was moving nesting material the little one was accidentally stepped on. (Aged 3 days 14.5 hours)  named 'Titch' means 'tiny infant' in English.    RIP, Little One.....
  06/18/2022 The two surviving chicks are named, in honor of Seaside's historical links to the Native American tribe of Clatsop. The Chinook language spoken by these earlier inhabitants is very much part of the local area;
    1st chick (B1):  Tyee means Boss, Chief, Superior in Chinook Jargon.
    2nd chick (B2):  Katsuk means Middle or Center in Chinook Jargon.
    "Information from Gill's dictionary of the Chinook jargon, with examples of use in conversation and notes upon tribes and tongues 1909."
