Hazards During Migration

Migration is a dangerous part of our life cycle.

Hazards during migration include storms, hunting, collisions with man-made objects such as wind turbines and starvation.

The risk of starvation is increased when stopover sites are lost through climate change or loss of habitat to land development or agriculture.

Ozzie did not survive the spring migration last year.  During my bereavement, I met Jonathan early last spring.  Because he is younger, and we were in a new relationship, we did not have any eggs. We are hoping we’ll have eggs this year.

Watch the doctor’s camera as we build our nest.

Here is a picture of the newly renovated Taj Mahal.
