SuzAnne Miller, Celia Osprey suggested I post this painting I finished last week, on your page. Hope you enjoy it, It is inspired by the 3 nests I observed over the summer and the memory of the ospreys we lost and the survivors. I attempted to capture the spirit of Dunrovin, Hellgate and Nelson BC. There are sections of old maps with the nest locations, the Dunrovin dogs, a horse and the colors of MT and BC. You may not be able to detect them but there are the rolling hills in the distance and rivers, fences and the infamous railway tracks, and so on. Wishing you a lovely autumn at Dunrovin. ...

Many of you are wondering what we have found out about Ozzie's death. We have no new information to share at this time. We are working with state and federal wildlife officials to get a try to mount Ozzie and display him along with a video showing him in all his grandeur and telling the story of how adults and children across the globe knew and loved him. He was a wonderful ambassador! ... See MoreSee Less

Linda FinleyHow wonderful that Ozzie could live on to share such and important goal in the life and survival of Ospreys everywhere. None of which would be possible for us to know and see if it wasn't for all of you at Dunrovin. You all brought all the magnificent photos , the 24 hr cameras, and the tons of information and gave us all and education into their lives. We have all of you at Dunrovin to give all the credit too. Ozzie will live on forever thru all his offspring for years to come for us to enjoy. Who would have thought Ozzie and Harriet would become such loved "stars" of the bird world? I hope it all works out that your ideas come true. :-)2 days ago   ·  7

Melissa AdamsOz was a osprey unlike any other, Stan at HG is a close runner -up....Oz will live on in our memories and the chicks he and Harriet hatched will carry their genes on to eternity.....I look forward to next spring with a heavy heart knowing that our Oz will not come home....but life goes on and Harriet will look for a new mate....I hope the new hubby will delight us just like Oz did.....and I hope Suz can make Oz into a lifetime achievement for everyone who wants to learn about osprey and the amazing life they lead...2 days ago   ·  8
Debbie Ertz CarlsonI am still so saddened by the loss of Ozzie as I'm sure everyone is. He was such a special Osprey, a loving and sweet and even sometimes funny mate to Harriet and hard working provider for the whole family. I understand and agree with the importance of educating and telling his story, remembering him through pictures, video, stories and memories. But I personally don't like the idea of having his body stuffed and mounted somewhere. That's not the way I want to remember him. As someone else suggested, perhaps a good idea would be to bury him next to Shadow and then let the pictures and video represent him as he was in life. I think if you ask, many viewers will feel the same. But in the end, I'm sure that whatever you at Dunrovin decide to do, you'll have everyone's understanding and support. I just felt it important to share. <32 days ago   ·  11
Nancy AbouhannaOzzie will be forever in my heart and knowing he was the best Mate and Dad for Harriet and their babies makes him missed even more. He definitely was an original and a very personable Osprey. Harriet's new mate will be welcomed with an open heart from me knowing she will choose the right mate for her and her future babies. Ozzie will be watching over her and guiding her from the heavens. I love you Ozzie <31 day ago   ·  2

Comment on Facebook

Have there been conclusive findings on the death of Ozzie? Eagles were suspected as causing his death and Osprey Friends are concerned for the safety of the nest in the future. As far as we have observed Eagles behavior, it is rare for one to actually kill an Osprey. Please ease our minds with your findings, if any. Dunrovin is an excellent location for an Osprey nest and cam which we enjoy more than you know. Ozzie was not an ordinary Osprey. He was loved and appreciated by many observers. Hopefully, such a mishap will not occur in the future. So, please if you can, let us know the findings of his death. ... See MoreSee Less

Linda FinleyCelia, I have this idea that my husband thinks is great, but, (only hypothetical ) since we love fish, and don't seem to be very good at fishing, hand raised some osprey, they learned to fish, we could send them out to get the fish ,and then share with them, and we would all be happy. They catch bigger and nicer fish, just a win , win situation. ? Right? Hypothetically speaking of course.. lol :-)3 weeks ago   ·  1

One Response to “Welcome to the Dunrovin Osprey Nest”

  1. Hi SuzAnne and Sterling,

    You are wonderful, kind and caring souls to share your life at your ranch with us. Thank you with all my heart! I had such happiness watching our sweet little Osprey family Ozzie and Harriet, Percy, Hope and Dilly, and viewing your beautiful horses. I felt part of your family then and even more so now since I am a member of your Dunrovin Ranch family. I learned so much about Ospreys and now learning about horses and ranch life. Thank you for giving of yourselves, I feel you are such beautiful and spiritual people for doing this. Blessings and goodness will come to you for making so many people happy! SuzAnne, I love your beautiful singing voice in your videos, it comes straight from within your heart and soul, I can feel it!

    Thank you and goodness and happiness to you,

    Nancy Acanfora
