Greetings 2020 Osprey Monitors!
I am so sorry this is a week late, but we are doing so many new things with the program that it took a little while longer than I expected.
Below is a link to the PRELIMINARY 2020 Nest Assignment List. It is preliminary because it only includes names from those monitors who gave me their preferred nest sites or geographic areas. It seems there was some confusion about this, so several monitors have not yet been assigned nests.
This is easy to remedy, if you do not see your name on the list, just send an email with your name, town you live in, and preferred nest site to email@example.com. Once I have received your preferred nest site I will update the list and we will republish it in about a week. Using the map of nest sites should help you find a nest near you. A link to the map is on the website at www.riosprey.info.
I am sure that there are some errors on the list, so if you find any please bring them to our attention by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to give up nest, or pick up a different one, just send a note to the same address.
Thank you for your patience and willingness to support the program!
And by the way, two Osprey have been sighted in Rhode Island, so dust off your binoculars! When you are ready to start reporting observations on your nest(s), you can access the Data Submission form on the website (www.riosprey.info) under “Submit Data”. You can log into the form by entering your email address. Please don’t forget to include latitude/longitude and directions to the nest, in the notes on your first submission!
