Few Days Rest in Cuba

Coley has traveled over 400 miles in Cuba between his arrival there on September 15 and last night, the 20th. He has taken it slowly, spending some time fishing and now seems to be staging in southeastern Cuba for another big flight, either to the east to Haiti or perhaps a flight south to Jamaica and then onto South America. I won’t go into details on his day-to-day movements this time, but please explore his flights on the Google Earth map on your own.

We’ll check in again after the weekend – by then he likely will be out of Cuba. But to where??

Thanks again to all of you for your input and support.

Coley and Dr. Bob Signing off.

  1. Are you tracking any other ospreys? In addition to being familiar with the nest of Coley on Crossbay Blvd. in the Rockaway area where I live half the time, I also live the other half of the time in Sag Harbor on the east end of Long Island. There are many osprey nests in Sag and I’d love to know if anyone might be tracking any of these Hamptons ospreys. (But then again, the ospreys from out here most likely have private jets,lol)

    • Hi Christine. We’re not currently tracking any other Ospreys, however, Dr. Kennedy has tracked two Ospreys from Nantucket. Maybe in future years we can expand the project and find out where some of these other birds head off to in the cold months.

  2. Your post on 9/21 suggests that we can track Coley on our own on Google Earth. Please tell us how to do that.

    • Hi Ann. Underneath the map you will notice a legend which offers links to both download Google Earth software as well as the kml file of Coley’s travels. Once downloaded, the kml file can be opened in Google Earth on your computer. Let us know if you have any problems.
