New Monitors – Nest Assignment Process

Hi new monitors!

Thank you very much for your interest in supporting Audubon’s RI Osprey Monitoring Program.   This program is volunteer-based and would not survive without your support.

If you have not yet attended one of our training sessions, please do so.  Attendance at one session is required to join the program.   A list of the upcoming dates and sites is below.

Since you will be spending 30+ hours this summer observing a nest, many people are very particular about which nest(s) they want to monitor.  We understand that you may be interested in a specific nest or geographic area and will do our best to meet your interest.

Following is an outline of the nest assignment process for 2019:

  1. Returning monitors can “claim” their nest from last year by emailing me by 3/15.
  2. New monitors – please attend one training session (see below for dates and times)
  3. A list of “open” nests will be posted and sent to monitors on 3/18.  The deadline for submission is 3/25.  Please request a nest by emailing Jon at  First-come basis. Please include “Nest Choice” in the subject line.
  4. Final nest assignments will be circulated by 4/1.

If you have any questions please feel free to send me a note at

Thank you again!
