Chris Crosley: I’m so anticipating turtle season! Have we formed day teams yet? Can’t wait to see you.
I believe you have sent an e-mail to us by mistake. We do not have anyone named Chris Crossley nor do we monitor turtles. You may like to visit our Osprey cam at http://www.explore.org. Juanita
I’m interested in a remote-cam volunteer slot. I watch osprey-cam pretty frequently already so I might as well be running it a couple of hours here and there.
I’ve forwarded your request to Janine Parziale who manages the Osprey and other cams. She’ll be in touch shortly. Her e-mail is *protected email*. Welcome to the FOHI volunteer team!
is your web cam working? I do not see a link to it where do the birds go in the winter?
Yes, we’ve had some trouble with our web cam, but it is working now. You can view it at http://www.explore.org and click on the Osprey photo. Ospreys usually migrate to South America in the winter. We do not have satellite trackers on Rachel and Steve but hope to in the near future, then we will know exactly where they go. Thank you for watching the osprey cam. You may want to check out the other Audubon cams on Seal Island and the puffins. Juanita
Dear Juanita, did the photo you took in the little fish pond with mud all over come out-Nick Bonacker
Hi Nick – I took the picture on my phone and still have it. Shall I send it to Juanita?
Best wishes to all my FOHI buddies – I miss you all!!!
We miss you too, Stephanie, and hope to see you in 2014.
Yes, it did. I posted in on FOHI’s Facebook page but will send a copy to you. Remarkably, you have little mud on you.
I live in Texas, and am interested in possibly volunteering for a camp next year. In the meantime, is there anything I can volunteer to do for y’all from here?
We will be posting the volunteer schedule for 2014 around the end of October or early November 2013. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We still have a few openings for our September 2013 programs. Check the dates on our sigh-up page:https://fohi.org/support/volunteer-signup/
I just posted an essay about my incredible time on Hog Island in September! It’s on the ABA site http://blog.aba.org/2013/10/open-mic-the-magic-of-hog-island.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+aba-blog+%28ABA+Blog%29
All the best,
Thanks for sharing this article with us and writing about our special place, Hog Island. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to see you again on the island in 2014. The 2014 sessions are already posted at http://www.hogisland.audubon.org; you can also check out the volunteer sessions in about another week at https://fohi.org/support/volunteer-signup/ Juanita
Perhaps the gentleman (& others) who gave the talk on the history of Hog Island would be interested in this recent article on Emily Dickinson from the NY Times. Some Todds are mentioned.
Thanks so much for sharing this. What a treasure trove finally coming into the public forum. We’ve passed it on as you requested. Juanita
Hello Juanita! We are so excited about Family Camp 2014! We plan to attend with the last (to date) grandchild. My first experience was at the Educator’s Camp. This will be my third Family Camp experience and I am probably more excited than my grandchildren. Since our camp trip will be our granddaughter’s Christmas present, I was wondering if there is any way to order a t-shirt or something similar as a more tangible gift to open on Christmas day. I can’t see any place on the website to make an order. Advice? Billie Allbritton
You can visit the Project Puffin on-line store at http://projectpuffin.3dcartstores.com/ They have the same items as we had in the Hog Island store. See you in 2014 at Family Camp.
Yes, we have space for a volunteer at the July 13 week. If you can still make it, sign-up online at https://fohi.org/support/volunteer-signup/
Looking forward to seeing you. Juanita
Hi, now that the chicks are banded, will there be “Adopt an Osprey” like Project Puffin?
Mmmm, that’s an interesting idea. Will have to get back to you on that.
We have no plans to have an “Adopt an Osprey” at the moment. But thanks for asking and for watching the Osprey cam.
I watch daily on the Osprey cam. I would like to know what the small black birds with white chests who dive for food are.As I look from the cam they are on the rocks with the white tips. I have tried myself to answer this but I am not having much luck. Thank you .
The small black birds that you usually see are Black Guillemots. They have white wing patches and red feet. In the winter you can still see them but they will appear as splotchy white, as they will have molted their black feathers.
Last year much to our delight the cam was left on, Two of us are from England UK and we spent everyday watching across Muscongus Bay I went to Facebook but got no reply to the question, ” is the camera staying on this year “. I never go to bed without watching the sun setting and also in the morning its the first place that I go, there is something magical about the Bay and I and many others love it too ! Please can you reply to me so i can let the others know and please leave it on for us ! Thank you !
We’ll check and get back to you within the next few days. Hog island has been put to bed and all is quiet. We have been enjoying some magnificent autumn days here.
Juanita – This note is long overdue. Steve and I thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Hog Island when we were sailing a few weeks ago. It is a very special place. I have told fiends they have to visit the island some day to experience how special it is. We will be definitely visit again and hope to volunteer for a week some summer.
Diane, Thank you for your kind words. Will look forward to seeing you again next year. We love our visiting boaters. Some have become friends and volunteers, even campers!!!
I had volunteered the summer of 2014 but I have had hip problems in 2015 and I am scheduled for surgery the end of 2015 so everything is tentative. Hope to join every
one this upcoming year.
Henry, We look forward to seeing you again. Good luck with the hip!! Juanita
Arecther 2″ spaces available for secession 1 of 2116 family vcamp?
Lynn, I have forwarded your question to the Hog Island registrar at *protected email* Good luck.
I need to change my address. Please send me contact information to change it.
Hope you have a great summer.
You can e-mail me at either *protected email* or *protected email* and put FOHI in subject line. Thanks much. Juanita
We spent one incredible week on Hog Island many years ago, now. Spouse’s long sleeve tee-shirt is going into the rag bin. Is it possible to buy another Hog Island Audubon Camp tee?
Ah, glad to hear of a worn out Hog Island tee! I don’t believe that we have long sleeves any more, only short sleeve. The Hog Island store is closed for the season, but I’ll check with the Rockland store to see if they have any.
Steven Hansen asked me to contact your organization, specifically Juanita Roushdy to offer advice on setting up a digital archive of your collection of 2,000 documents and photographs for public use.
I am happy to send you a copy of the manual I produced of digitizing for small organizations and I am also available as a consultant to create the digital collection for your organization.
Let me know how I can be helpful.
Thank you, Jessica. FOHI is eager to set up a digital archive for all the historical photos and documents of Hog Island; it is part of FOHI’s mission to do so. I look forward to receiving your manual.
Hi Juanita, I want two of my grand children (ages 8 and 12) to experience the summer family camp at Hog Island. What are the 2019 dates, and when does registration open? Thanks, and congratulations on another outstanding year. Best, Bob Horn
Hello Bob, The registration for the 2019 season will go live on October 15. The dates for Family Camp are August 4-9 and August 11-16. It fills up quickly. See you in 2019!
