2018 Nest Assignments

Hello Fellow Osprey Monitors!

Following are the initial nest assignments for the 2018 season.?? I say initial because this is always a work in progress.?? Please consider the following before you skip down to find your nest(s)


  1. I have not heard back from everyone, so there are quite a few nests that still need a monitor.????Please consider emailing me to cover a nest that needs a monitor.?? As always, the early bird gets the fish.
  2. Some of the data (town, status, etc..) may not be correct.?? We look to you to help us make sure the data is correct for the start of the season.
  3. If your name is not on the list please email me directly ASAP so that I may assgn you a nest.?? Likewise, if you want a change in your assignment, please email me ASAP.
  4. There is no priority or rank associated with Monitor 1 versus Monitor 2.
  5. The list is sorted by City.?? Please check the entire list for your name.?? You may have been assigned multiple nests.?? Be sure to check both columns (Monitor 1 and 2).
  6. Recording Observations:?? On Sunday April 8th I will enter all the new monitors’ usernames into the system so that you may record your observations.?? Please feel free to email me with any problems after the 8th.

Thank you all for your patience as we head into the season!?? I look forward to reading your observations and seeng you on the trails.?? Please remember to visit this site every weeek and submit your observations the same week.?? ??Since I subtotal the observations each month any delay in entering your observations changes the data and creates a bit of exta work.?? So thank you in advance for entering your observations the same week.

Jon Scoones

Nest Assignments

Hi monitors!!

Well it is clear that the Osprey are returning for another season in RI!?? Thank you for all the updates and photos!!

I am working on the nest assignments and hope to have them out by the end of the week.?? ??I am sorry for the delay, but am working to finish up the list as quickly as possible.

New monitors: Thank you for your patience!?? This is an exciting time, but no worries as we certainly have time for me to set up the nest assignments.?? ??I am also in the process of giving each of you access to submit your data.?? That should also be completed by the end of the week.

Returning monitors: Please continue to monitor the nests that you have in previous years.?? If you requested any changes I am processing them now.

My plan is to add a link to the nest assignment list at the end of the week.?? ??So please check the website on Friday.

Thank you again,

Jon Scoones

Program Update

First off, Osprey have been sighted in RI !!?? ?? The first two people who send me a clear picture of an Osprey in RI get a free t-shirt.?? ??Typically this competition is over by April 1st – so no need to keep sending pics after that date!

Returning monitors: Please keep those emails coming with the nests you would like to cover in 2018.?? We have had several folks retire, so there will be some opwenings.?? I will announce them byApril 1st.

Clarification: I am delighted to still be managing the RI Osprey Monitoring program.?? Although my new position is Manager at Audubon’s Caratunk Wildlife Refuge, I am still the go-to guy for the Osprey program!?? ??The centralized volunteer program I used to direct is now being managed on a local level as needed by each different wildlife refuge.

The Osprey Report for 2017 has been posted on the website.?? Please email me back with any corrections or questions.?? And please remember that this Report is a product of
YOUR efforts throughout the season!?? Many thanks.

Interns: Lily (whom you have also heard from) is a fantastic college intern who has been helping to organize the program for this Spring.?? ??Kalya is post-college intern who has been creating new maps for our use.?? You should see them on the website in a couple of weeks.

Training Sessions:?? If you have already attended a sessiojn in the past you do not have to attend another one – but we are always happy to see you and catch up!

Please stay in touch, and I look forward to seeing many of you at the training sessions.

Attention, returning monitors!

Just posting to remind returning monitors to please contact Jon at jscoones@asri.org and let him know which nest(s) you plan to cover for the 2018 season. We are looking to confirm assignments for returning monitors by Tuesday, March 4th. Ideally, we would like to get all returning monitors assigned with nests by the start of our training sessions which begin on March 11th. Thanks!

Welcome, new and returning monitors!

It is with this post that the Audubon Society of Rhode Island announces the commencement of the 2018 Osprey Monitoring Program. After a successfully reflective report published in October quantifying population related findings of 2017, our organization is eager to begin planning for this year???s monitoring. Currently, program head Jon Scoones and the team are working to organize training sessions for new monitors that will be held mid March; a list of specific times and dates can be found below. Please remember to RSVP which training session you will be attending at jscoones@asri.org. It is helpful to review the Osprey Monitoring Guide prior to your chosen training session so that you can come prepared with any questions you may have! This document can be found to the right of our homepage under ???Informational Resources???. If you have not done so already, please submit an official volunteer application through our website.

2018 Osprey Monitor Training Sessions

March 11 Kettle Pond Visitor Center, 50 Bend Road, Charlestown 2:00 ??? 4:30
March 18 Audubon Caratunk Wildlife Refuge, 301 Brown Ave, Seekonk, MA 10:00-12:00
March 18 Audubon Headquarters, 12 Sanderson Road, Smithfield, RI 2:00-4:30
March 25 Audubon Education Center, 140 Hope Street, Bristol, RI 2:00-4:30

We are also preparing to distribute nests among volunteers. Please come to the training sessions with a certain nest in mind that you would be interested in monitoring throughout season ??? available nests can be viewed in our Google Maps page, located on the right of our homepage under ???Informational Resources???, as well. Returning monitors have already been asked to report to Jon on whether or not they will continue monitoring their designated nests in 2017. Assigning yourself a nest(s) will allow us to properly cover as many nests as possible, offering more data to the study and thus resulting in a more accurate report for 2018. Note that this program also covers a small region in MA, and nests located in Seekonk and Swansea are available to monitor as well but will not be factored in to RI statistics at the end of the study. Please report nests with intent to monitor to Jon by April 15th, the official start of the monitoring season.

Lastly, my name is Lily and I am thrilled to be interning with Jon and the organization throughout this year???s monitoring program. Science has been a long term passion of mine, and I strongly believe that wildlife restoration and protection should be a focus within our community. I am a Bristol native, and student at URI pursuing a degree in Biology. My email is listed below, and I am available for discussion regarding the study at any time. Thanks!

Program Update for 2018


Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that I have accepted the position of Refuge Manager at Audubon Rhode Island???s Caratunk Wildlife Refuge, in Seekonk, MA.?? ??(Although the refuge is in Mass.,?? Audubon RI owns and manages the property.)

I will still be responsible for management of the RI Osprey Monitoring Program.?? Nothing changes on that front, except that I will need more help!

My primary job will be to build community support for this popular wildlife refuge that has not had a manager directly overseeing the property for six years. My transition from statewide Director of Volunteer Services to this new (for me) position will occur over the next several months so that I may assist with volunteer services moving from a statewide program to one that is more locally based.

While I am excited to begin a new chapter with Audubon, I am also saddened that I will no longer be interacting with each of you on a regular basis as I have in the past. I do hope to see many of you at the Caratunk Refuge for Maple Sugaring and other programs.

I have enjoyed working with you all over past five years. Together we have made many improvements to the volunteer program. Your time and efforts have made such a positive impact on Audubon and the public.

Naturally, there will be some changes to the volunteer program in the next couple of months. We are working to make the transition as smooth as possible and appreciate your patience during this time.

I wish you all the best and invite you to stop by Caratunk!

2018 Osprey Monitor Training Sessions

The goal of the Osprey monitor training sessions is to explain the program???s goals and processes to people interested in becoming an Osprey monitor. The program will?? introduce attendees to the program’s training guide and?? web page.?? During the training session attendees will learn about Osprey, the process of monitoring a nest and reporting the observations.

All new monitors are required to attend one training session. Returning monitors are not required to attend but frequently do as it is a good way to see old friends and catch up on the latest Osprey-related news. If you have already attended a training session and cannot make one of the following dates, be sure to visit the program website to learn about any changes to the program.

2018 Osprey Monitor Training Sessions

March 11 Kettle Pond Visitor Center, 50 Bend Road, Charlestown 2:00 ??? 4:30

March 18 Audubon Caratunk Wildlife Refuge, 301 Brown Ave, Seekonk, MA 10:00-12:00

March 18 Audubon Headquarters, 12 Sanderson Road, Smithfield, RI 2:00-4:30

Heads Up – The 2017 Osprey Report is Coming!

The final version of the report is being reviewed and should be ready for posting next week! The number of monitors (110) and hours spent monitoring (1,340) were in line with last year’s numbers. In 2017 volunteers monitored 274 nests (264 in RI and 10 in MA). Of those nests 145 were deemed active, of which 121 were successful. Monitors observed 226 fledglings from the nests in RI and 21 fledglings from the nests in MA, for a total of 247 fledglings.

Stay tuned for the details!!

Jon Scoones
