Gerry... an adult male trapped on Griswold Pt at the mouth of the Connecticut River. We named him in honor of Gerry Mersereau who banded Ospreys from the 1960s through 2005 when he passed away. It came as no surprise when we found out that our "Gerry" had indeed been banded by Gerry Mersereau on 23 June 1998.  

There were four young in the nest. One was really small and was not present at the next nest visit about a week later. That's pretty typical.

1-8 June

Most of Gerry's fishing time during the first week after his tagging has been spent in the mouth of the Connecticut River, as we expected. He has spent some time over on Bride Brook in Rocky Neck State Park as well as in the Sound just south of the park.

9-15 June

Gerry had shifted his attention to the west. He made three quick trips to Bride Brook, but apparently wasn't impressed.
