Here’s another random bird thought for you.
Ospreys that are born in New England fly to their wintering grounds in South America and do not return the next summer. They come back the second summer when they are of breeding age.
New England’s Osprey population has increased tremendously — especially in coastal areas — over the last decade. Good news!
Some Osprey have returned to New England already, but most will return in late March or early April.
