THE FEMALE AT THE FINNISH NEST CONTINUES TO BE QUITE UNWELL. THE CONFUSION WAS BECAUSE OF A FEMALE INTRUDER ON THE NEST THAT TOOK THE CHICKS FISH AND PECKED AT THEM.

I went to the UK as a Commonwealth Scholar in 1990 and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 1993. After three decades of university teaching, I retired to devote my time to the study of raptor behaviour. I am particularly interested in Ospreys and am working on a long term project on third hatch survival and siblicide in these raptors. My blog is a result of a fascination with my local wildlife and the desire to encourage others to love and care for birds! I live on the Canadian Prairies and prior to the pandemic travelled a lot. I am questioning the use of aviation fuel at the moment as we all strive to help our planet. My early research was in politics and art including British public statues exported to Southeast Asia and Vietnam Resistors that contributed much to Canadian ceramics. Books and articles were published on those subjects over a period of 3 decades. Now I am working on books for children so they can learn about the challenges our raptors face.

Thanks Mary Ann for the update on the Mom on the Finnish nest. It may be why she has been away and may be injured or something from the intruder. Prayers and get well wishes for her 🙏❤️ Hopefully the intruder will stay away 🙏
We look forward to more updates.
Take care and thank you Mary Ann!
