Young osprey dies because of discarded fishing line

Almost a dozen people spent their Sunday afternoon trying to save an Osprey that was dangling from its nest, caught on fishing line on the Ash Creek salt marsh.

Recycle fishing line and save birds

Parts of the waterfront in Fairfield and Bridgeport will soon be getting new recycling tubes for the safe disposal of the monofilament fishing line that can strangle or disable birds who get caught in it.

Ospreys have returned to Connecticut for the nesting season. If trends continue, well over 400 pairs will successfully raise young birds here and send them on their way in 2018.
