Donovan is the father of two young ospreys, named Jill and Chip, who were tagged at a nest near the J.Jill outlet store in Tilton. He was named after the tree company, Donovan's Tree Experts, who conduct most of the science center's tree work. This year, company owner Dallas Wrath spent two days with the research team and gave Bierregaard the "smoothest rides he's ever had to nest," said MacLeod.
According to the data provided since the transmitters were affixed, Donovan and Mackenzie are already sending data showing where they fish and revealing how large their territories are. Each of the ospreys nests, one at J.Jill and the other at Fort Hill, have three eggs.
The project is funded by Public Service of New Hampshire, the Jane B. Cook 1983 Charitable Trust and Squam Lakes Natural Science Center's Innovative Project Fund.
