West River Memorial Park Osprey Camera



The Osprey camera at West River Memorial Park in New Haven was made possible by a grant fromwatershed-fund

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.

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.
The Osprey chick has fledged and is being taught how to fish by its father.

Ospreys have been nesting on this platform in the West River Memorial Park for many years.They generally return from their winter homes in South America during the third week in March. After rebuilding their nest they will start raising a new family.

Menunkatuck’s Osprey camera is a collaborative project with the New Haven Parks, Recreation, and Trees Department, New Haven Public Schools, Barnard Nature Center, and Barnard Environmental Studies Magnet School.

  1. I know there were three eggs on the nest. Does anyone know what happened to the third egg? Is it still there? It’s hard to tell.

  2. Sherri, I think it had just happened when you saw the hatching before 8 a.m. Mom was just moving the shell out when I peeked in. I saw a good feeding earlier today as well and all is good. They are just too cute!!
