The Osprey camera at Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison was made possible by
and a grant from the
in collaboration with the
Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection,
Meigs Point Nature Center,
Friends of Hammonasset.
|This is a wild Osprey nest and anything can happen. While we hope that healthy Osprey chicks will end up fledging from the nest this summer, things like sibling rivalry, predators, and natural disaster can affect this Osprey family and may be difficult to watch. As hard as it may be to see anything happen to our Osprey, we will let nature take its course and not intervene.|

The Osprey camera is located just west of the Meigs Point Nature Center.
We use infrared light for nighttime viewing. Infrared is not visible to the Ospreys or to humans, however, the video camera can capture the images.
We expect the first egg to hatch on or about May 25.
