Belle’s Journey: An Osprey Takes Flight
Take flight with Belle, an osprey born on Martha’s Vineyard as she learns to fly and migrates for the first time to Brazil and back–a journey of more than 8,000 miles.
Dr. B. and Dick, two osprey scientists in Massachusetts, observe ospreys and their offspring, tagging one special fledgling with a transmitter to better study migration habits. Follow Belle as she attempts her first flight, conquers her first fishing endeavor, and heads south for her first migration all while her tracking device transmits information about where’s she been. Based on information garnered through twenty years of research by the author, Belle’s Journey will soar into reader’s hearts.
