The Wilds is home once again to a unique bird species. Thanks to the Osprey Reintroduction Project, five 8-month-old chicks arrived Monday afternoon. The project, in collaboration with the Ohio Division of Wildlife wants the ospreys to mature and hopefully return to the Wilds in a few years and nest chick of their own. Once populating the Southeastern Ohio Region, these eight chicks will eventually establish twenty breeding pairs of osprey in Ohio by 2010. The chicks are expected to remain at the Wilds until the fall, when they will head south for the winter.
