Hammonasset Osprey Camera

The Osprey camera at Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison was made possible by
Ted Williams
and a grant from the
French Foundation
in collaboration with the
Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection,
Meigs Point Nature Center,
and the
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.

If you enjoyed our Osprey cam, consider supporting Menunkatuck’s projects with your tax deductible donation.

First Osprey sighted by Sheri

on Saturday, March 23, at 6:51am.

See something interesting? Email Lorrie at lorrie@menunkatuck.org with the day/time.

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.

  1. Celia there is sort of a rewind feature…we pay for video storage so if you see something really special, let us know the day/time and we can retrieve a clip

  2. Yes there was high drama on the nest tonight, the balloon from the other day reappeared along with the long ribbon, this time it was attached to the female Osprey’s leg. She flew off dragging balloon (we have photos and video to share…this is a real public service announcement)
    Luckily she landed back on the nest, and I watched as the ribbon came undone from her leg. The Osprey team, Terry, Ed and Deanna retrieved the balloon, the ribbon and fishing line from nest.

  3. i wish there was a rewind feature, this si a beautiful cam and nest–thank you 🙂 <3
