Don Hudson, director of the Chewonki Foundation, has conducted an annual survey
Don Hudson, director of the Chewonki Foundation, has conducted an annual survey of osprey breeding success in the Midcoast for the past four years. Osprey populations in Maine seem to have avoided the devastation of DDT better than populations elsewhere, and during the past decade populations in the state have increased dramatically. There is a relationship between hatchling rates and osprey populations, between numbers of birds and the fish that support them, and between the ecologies of eagles and ospreys. Ospreys are much more adaptable than eagles, and it is hoped that their success is a forerunner of things to come with eagles. Details.
