Human–Osprey Conflicts: Industry, Utilities, Communication, and Transportation

  title={Human–Osprey Conflicts: Industry, Utilities, Communication, and Transportation},
  author={Brian E. Washburn},
Abstract Although often perceived as a species of remote settings, Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are highly adaptable and currently are abundant in many urban and suburban landscapes. Living in close proximity to humans, Ospreys often come into conflict with people and several important issues require the attention of and management by natural resource professionals. These include effects on: (1) industry (e.g., foraging at aquaculture facilities), (2) utilities (e.g., nesting on electric utility… 
Predictors of Osprey Nest Success in a Highly Urbanized Environment
Abstract. Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are adaptable fish-eating raptors that readily nest on artificial structures in heavily human-dominated areas. Although the Osprey is a well-studied species, few
Nest-site selection by Eastern Osprey Pandion haliaetus cristatus in coastal south-eastern Queensland
With increasing human populations in south-eastern Queensland, the provision of alternative nesting options, such as strategically placed platforms, needs to be considered to ensure the continued breeding success of Ospreys in the region and to minimise conflict with humans.
Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) in the 21st Century: Populations, Migration, Management, and Research Priorities
Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are remarkable raptors that play a pivotal role in the identification of DDT as a major threat to aquatic ecosystems and the banning of its use in the U.S.
Hospital Admissions of Australian Coastal Raptors Show Fishing Equipment Entanglement is an Important Threat
Abstract. Coastal raptors in urban landscapes face multiple threats. Australia's coastal raptors (Osprey [Pandion haliaetus cristatus], White-bellied Sea-Eagle [Haliaeetus leucogaster], Brahminy Kite
Conserving wildlife facing mass‐tourism calls for effective management
We thank Drs Steven and Martinez-Abrain for elaborating on problems related to tourism impacting endangered bird species. In the 21st century, nature-based tourism has often reached the magnitude of
Habitat preferences of juvenile Scottish Ospreys Pandion haliaetus at stopover and wintering sites
ABSTRACT In this study, we use satellite-tracking data from five juvenile Scottish Ospreys Pandion haliaetus to explore habitat preferences at stopover and wintering sites. Daily activity patterns
Wintering of Ospreys in Argentina: Insights From New Records Between 1993–2008
It is found that Ospreys occur year-round in Argentina, with a higher concentration in spring to summer (1 October to 31 March), and the importance of northeastern rivers, and central and northwestern reservoirs as wintering areas is confirmed.
Nest-Site Selection and Nesting Success in a Restored Population of Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota (USA) Area
Abstract. For more than three decades, a restored population of Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, metropolitan area has used artificial nesting structures nearly
Peregrine Falcons Nest Successfully During Reconstruction of Bridge Over Ohio River
Peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) often nest on bridges over rivers and other waterways, resulting in the need for mitigation planning for bridge maintenance and reconstruction. However,


Ospreys of the Chesapeake Bay: Population Recovery, Ecological Requirements, and Current Threats
Abstract The Chesapeake Bay supports the largest Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) breeding population in the world. The population experienced a dramatic reduction due to biocide-induced reproductive
Mortality of Wintering Ospreys and Other Birds at Aquaculture Facilities in Colombia
It was showed that bird depredation occurs at aquaculture facilities throughout the country, but mostly in the southern portion of the country in the department of Huila, where many Ospreys are shot each year.
The 1973 distribution and abundance of breeding ospreys in the Chesapeake Bay
An aerial survey in association with several intensive ground surveys yielded the first estimate of the size of the osprey (Pandion haliaetus carolinensis) nesting population in Chesapeake Bay. The
Satellite-monitored radiotelemetry data show that some southern Florida breeding Ospreys migrate to South America, and some northern breeding OSpreys winter in Florida.
An Integrated Management Approach for Nesting Osprey to Protect Human Safety and Aircraft at Langley AFB, Virginia
Author(s): Olexa, Thomas Joseph | Abstract: North American osprey are increasingly becoming a serious aviation safety concern to both military and civilian aircraft. Since 1985, the United States Air
Collision mortality of local and migrant birds at a large-scale wind-power development on Buffalo Ridge, Minnesota
In 1994 Xcel Energy initiated a wind-power development project in southwestern Minnesota that will eventually produce 425 megawatts (MW) of electricity. During our study the wind farm consisted of 3

Understanding the relative hazards of wildlife to aircraft is important for developing effective management programs. We used Federal Aviation Administration National Wildlife Strike Database records
Assessment of predation at trout hatcheries in central Pennsylvania
Evaluation of the economic justification of establishing a predator-loss management program at a hatchery will be only as good as the reliability and accuracy of the estimates of "impact" on which that evaluation is based.

Abstract Satellite telemetry was used to determine fall migratory movements of Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) breeding in the United States. Study areas were established along the lower Columbia River
