Featured Live Cam: Osprey

Osprey pair Rachel and Steve make their summer home atop a 30 foot tower located at the Audubon Camp in Maine on Hog Island. Ospreys are birds of prey an almost all-fish diet, so they nest and raise their chicks near water. They return to Hog Island each year in early April after wintering in South America.

Two chicks are now here! The third egg was probably never fertilized and will not hatch. To see highlights and learn more about this pair, visit explore.org/osprey.
