This male osprey is half of the pair that was on this pole. I have heard disturbing news about the female. She was shot with no justifiable reason. I am not sure if the person who did the shooting was caught; however, I do know it was reported to DEC Police in New York State. The female officer told those who said it that there was nothing she could do. This turn of events saddens me, these two were the pair I asked to have named. No name was chosen. I was about to send out a pole to select proper names. I am saddened especially since it has been since last 05/08/2019 that I had seen them together. I can not verify that the female found was part of this pair but seeing the male alone with no sign of the female is probably proof. I'll keep checking in.
