Re: Banded Osprey sighted in Morro Bay
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As a follow-up to the information provided by Nicollet Overby of "Bloom Biological, Inc." regarding Ospreys banded in Newport Beach:
In 2018/19 three Ospreys were sighted in SLO County, all banded as chicks on the same date (4/23/2018) by Peter Bloom in Newport Beach, with the consecutive numbers 61, 62, 63.
Sightings in SLO County:
#61 - at Avila Dog Beach, Avila Bay
#62 - at the Morro Bay Marina
#63 - at Oso Flaco Lake
These birds were seen (and reported on eBird) more than once.
These three Osprey apparently were the product of the last successful nesting (2018) prior to the failed nests in 2019 and 2020.
USGS Bird Banding Laboratory issues "Certificates of Appreciation" for banded bird reports (see below)

I am posting for Sharon Blakely
On Oct 19, Sharon Blakely spotted a banded Osprey sitting on the light pole over the restroom in the parking lot at Morro Rock. She had just watched Lisa Field’s presentation to MCAS on Osprey at Mono Lake and was on the alert for bands. It had a right leg silver band, left leg white-on-black band with a clear “P6” on the band. She sent the report to both Lisa Fields and reportband.gov and received this reply:
