I'd like to post a few pictures from the osprey nest at Connecticut Audubon Society's Milford Point Coastal Center - link to cam is http://ospreycam.ctaudubon.org:81/view/ ... ndex.shtml, and you may need to install software to view it. I don't want to set up a thread as there's an active community following it on the Maine Window on Wildlife forum (observations from the cam - http://www.window-on-wildlife.com/index.php?topic=17.0; on-site photos by local observers - http://www.window-on-wildlife.com/index.php?topic=22.0), and I rarely have time to do more than check their posts to see what's happening - but I did want to mention it in case there are others who have an interest and a bit more time. )

They have four eggs, laid April 12-21; the adults are known as Captain Kidd and Lola.

Here are a few photos from today:

Milford Osprey Nest - part 2 of 2

First adult prepares to leave as incoming adult settles in; I'm noting that there are a lot of lighter brown feathers on the adult who is taking a break - perhaps moulting? I think osprey sometimes do a bit of moulting during the nesting season, as they're generally less active than during their annual commute to and from South America.

The initial adult returned and watched the eggs - and after a bit the darker adult came in with another item for decorating the nest! This pair brings in quite the collection of things!

I think the darker adult is Lola - though it's hard to judge just on size as whatever is nearer the cam looks bigger

After a failed attempt of getting an email answer from Columbia Wireless about the Nelson osprey cam I finally phoned the City of Nelson. Marg Craig of Nelson Hydro has given her permission for us to post pictures from the nest cam. Very Happy
The link to the thread and cams is here forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=652378

Edit to add: Tuesday evening I got an email from Columbia Wireless. Thanks now also goes to Ben Leslie, CEO of Columbia Wireless for also giving his approval for our screen captures and thread. Left thumb up

This osprey nest is on a light standard at our local university. I witnessed an adult flying in with a fish, then leaving a few seconds later; unfortunately before I could get past the tree to get a clear view for a photo. When the adult left the nest I saw a wing flapping and managed to capture an osprey in the nest.

wave Hi JudyB

This is an osprey nest near Canmore Alberta which was brought to my attention by my best friend who lives there - www.livestream.com/fortisab

Karen, that is wonderful. I checked it out and from the sounds of it, it is right beside the highway. Hearing lots of traffic noises.
We can start a thread for it if you're at all interested in adding to it.

I am interested! It seems the female has only laid one egg so far, at least that is all I have seen. The nest is right near the Bow River. I check on it when the nests in Europe get dark Smile
