GHO again :furious:

June 6
An owl took Floyd
I cant believe how FAST it happened!
Owl approached on our LEFT, 2 kids asleep front left, Nova inside with them.
Nova sees owl jumps up, owl snatch n grab and is gone
Nova had one talon up like a kick boxer!
Nova got her talon caught in poor Elise


From Raptor Resource:
June 6, 2020
We are sorry to announce that falcon Floyd was killed by a Great Horned Owl last night. While GHO predation of peregrine falcons is well-documented, we are always sad to lose a falcon we know. We do not have a way to drive the owls away - the territory is huge, we aren't sure where their nest is, and it would be illegal to disrupt them - but we are working on ways to introduce an inaccessible-to-owls hidey-hole or space that nestlings can safely sleep and shelter in.

Newman and Nova's first mated year has a sad end.

Birds fly .. over the rainbow ...
Why then o why cant I

GABear Mod RRP explore
Sad news this morning. Unfortunately, the GHO returned and took Elise. I'm so very sorry! While we mourn the loss of the eyasses, please remember to be kind to each other. Many virtual hugs will be needed. Not everyone will process what has happened in the same way. Let's allow everyone to express their sorrow in their way as long as there is no disrespect to people or nature. Nature can be hard to watch during times like this. Please also be kind to yourself - if this is too hard to deal with right now, take a break for a while.

:sorrow:

This is beyond sad.
I believe this is the same owl as last year. It will come back every year now I'm sure, it will remember that there is a good meal to be found at this location. :girlsad3:

So incredibly horrifying and sad. You are probably right, DEF...this GHO knew there was a meal to be had here. Knowing this is the way of nature, doesn't really help...also knowing that the falcons also raid nests really doesn't help either. Maybe this nest would benefit from bars like they use on some of the Edmonton nests. Just wide enough for the falcons to get through, but difficult for anything larger. At least it would slow the GHO down and allow the parents to defend. Maybe that suggestion could be offered.

Mama Nova didnt like the box, she liked the ledge and cliff.
Newman coaxed her into the box.

A few years ago I happened to see an owl inside the box looking around. It was off season for falcons to be there.

The audubon osprey contends with both GHO and eagle.

I read on the Internet that the Great Spirit Bluff folks are thinking of ways to make the box owl proof. Lets hope that they come up with something good. :sorrow:

From Amy
RRP did not band at Sherco or King. Because of Covid-19, we were not allowed into any Xcel plants except Prairie Island.
