Ospreys on the Patuxent

Join us to learn about Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus), the often-seen “fish hawk” of local rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. Alex Pellegrini will discuss Osprey biology, his experiences banding Ospreys, re-introduction efforts, and how this once-imperiled bird became a conservation success story. Alex is a Naturalist for the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) at Patuxent River Park in Prince George’s County, MD and a Farmland Raptor Program Coordinator for the Maryland Bird Conservation Partnership. Alex has the privilege of working with Greg Kearns, the Principal Naturalist at Patuxent River Parkand an expert on the wetland ecology of the Chesapeake Bay, who has studied Ospreys for the past 40 years. Alex will share his knowledge of these birds and highlight the magnificence of these raptors.
