:buzzybee: From Mod at Charlo:

RknRbn Mod • 34 minutes ago • edited
Great news, Charlo Osprey friends!! The mission to remove the baling twine from the nest was a success!!
The twine had become wrapped around the foot of one of the chicks, but that was removed and the chick should be okay. Charlie and Charlotte returned to the nest, and both chicks were fed with the fish that Charlie was holding when the rescue team arrived.
A huge shout out to ORI and the truck crew for a job well done. We can all breathe a sigh of relief that the nest is clean and the C's will carry on - business as usual!

:buzzybee: As you can see from the message above, we were not told all the facts from that incident at the Charlo nest at that time after reading the 2nd update below.

The youngest chick known as C13 was removed from the Charlo nest very late Monday evening d/t leg not healing from previous twine entanglement that they became aware of after they went up to remove twine that this chick was tangled in for the 2nd time this season.

:15heartbeat: Update #1 from yesterday:

ORI Lauren Mod • a day ago
Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to share some updates on the new baling twine Charlie brought back to the nest-- we're closely monitoring the situation, and the chicks, since one was tangled previously but we were able to untangle it and remove the baling twine.

Our biologist is planning to go out later this evening with a special telescoping camera on a pole to get a closer look at the nest and the chick to get a better idea of what's going on up there. We are waiting until later this evening because the light is too bright right now, and we don't want to expose the chicks to the hottest part of the day, as the adults will flush once we go out there. The camera will be turned off then, but will be back on early tomorrow morning.

I will also have more updates to share soon, as we have many people to thank for their efforts in watching the chicks as well as in helping provide us with information and advice, and access to a bucket truck so we could get our biologist up there to remove the baling twine the first time around. The nesting platform is too high for us to reach unassisted, which makes it challenging for us to get up there quickly.

Thank you all for your dedicated observations, we really appreciate that there are so many folks helping us keep an eye on these birds and their chicks!

:15heartbeat: Update #2 from today:

ORI Lauren Mod • 3 hours ago
Morning everyone-

As some of you have noticed, the second chick is indeed not in the nest anymore. We were able to get up to the nest very late last night (after 11 pm on July 5), to check on the chick and remove the new baling twine Charlie had brought into the nest. The second chick was indeed tanged again, and our biologist, in consultation with a local osprey expert and a local raptor rehabilitation expert, made the decision to remove the chick from the nest to take it in to a rehab facility early this morning. I don't have any status updates on the chick at this time, but will share them as I can.

This chick (the youngest one) had been previously tangled in baling twine, which had tightened around its leg. They are hoping that some medicine and physical therapy will help the chick, but we will have to wait and see. The previous baling twine was removed about a week ago; at that time the rehabber had estimated that the injury, if it could heal, would take about two weeks. In general, osprey chicks do better when they are left with their parents, so because Charlotte and Charlie were taking such excellent care of their chicks it was decided to leave the chick, as they don't tend to do well in a rehab facility. Unfortunately, the leg wasn't healing as well as we would have liked, so the chick was taken in.

As I said, I will provide updates when I can; I know there are many people who, just like us here at ORI, are very concerned about this little chick.

I'm working on putting together more information in general about baling twine and osprey, and will hopefully have that to share with you all soon as well. In the meantime, huge thanks to everyone who has helped do what we can for this chick: everyone at Explore.org and those here who alerted us to the baling twine and have been watching the osprey; local experts at the Raptor View Research Institute and at Wild Skies Raptor Center, and the local business that has provided the bucket truck to give us access to the nest-- the operators are a small local company with only two trucks and little free time, and have been incredibly gracious in helping us, giving up their after work and family time to come with their truck so we can access the nest. We at ORI are incredibly grateful for this community of people here in Western Montana and around the country- and the world- who care so much about these osprey. Thank you all.

:15heartbeat: Edit to add at 7:20 CDST, they are saying it is C12 instead of C13 now:

RknRbn Mod • an hour ago
We are still gathering details/looking at pics of the first intervention to confirm, but we are fairly certain that the chick remaining in the nest is C13, and it is C12 that was taken to the rehabber.

Edit to add at 1:46 am CDST:

Pictures taken at the first nest visit (June 28) indicate that C12 is the chick that was entangled in the twine and is now with the rehabber. This determination was made by comparing the feather growth...C12 would be a day or two ahead of C13.
Here is a pic of C12 (in front) and C13 in the nest after the baling twine had been removed.

:sorrow: C12 the eldest chick of Charlie and Charlotte was euthanized D/T the extent of it's injuries. Personally, I was unaware of any GHO attacks on this nest between the 1st and 2nd twine entanglements and was surprised to see possible mention of it in the official notice. I asked about this and the mod on chat for the Charlo Nest said a GHO attack was not witnessed, but this is speculation based on the extent of the injuries. And the truth is they do not know. She went on to say that GHO attacks have been witnessed every year as a territorial dispute on perched birds (I am adding this, so that means Charlie and Charlotte). And that GHO's have never preyed on chicks in the nest here. So keep this in mind when you read the notice from the mod below.

Hi Everyone, (this post was also shared on the Great Horned Owl Cam)

It's with a very heavy heart that I share this update on C12, the oldest osprey chick who was tangled in baling twine and removed from the nest. Once the chick's leg was x-rayed, it was discovered that there were multiple serious breaks-- too severe for the chick to be a candidate for any surgery or medical intervention. The rehabilitation staff made the very difficult and painful decision to euthanize. Osprey with one leg would not be able to survive in the wild, and one-legged raptors cannot be kept legally in captivity.

While the chick was tangled in baling twine and injured by it, the extent and severity of the injuries revealed by the x-ray suggest that it was attacked by a predator while tangled in the baling twine. This seems a likely scenario, with the Great Horned Owls who live nearby, and the observed attacks on the Osprey nest.

For more details about what happened, please see this post on ORI's website: https://www.owlresearchinst...

We've included links at the end of the post where you can learn more about baling twine, how devastating it can be for Osprey, and what we can do about it. The first steps: spreading public awareness, and organizing recycling and clean up programs.

Please share this and help us spread awareness about the dangers of baling twine for Osprey. By working together, we can help make sure this doesn't happen to other Ospreys in the future.
