The name that Lori Covert chose for Connie and Clive’s 2023 hatch – Captiva Eaglet 9 – is Connick. What a unique name! Well done, Lori, for recognising Connor and Nick’s efforts at Window to Wildlife! They have done an amazing job this year getting everything back together after Hurricane Ian.
Some captures of Clive, Connie, and Connick from today:
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.

Thank you Mary Ann for this update! I was thinking and hoping she would name the baby using both names together. I really like it!
Connick is a little sweetheart 💕
