An OspreyCam Update 2013
NS Power and the Museum of Natural History are proud to once again bring a real-time view of a local osprey nest to fans around the world. Since 2007, viewers have tuned in online to watch a pair of ospreys happily build their nest and raise their young through spring and summer before flying south each winter, seemingly oblivious to the camera overlooking their nest.
Last year Ethel and Oscar were not around much and reliable sightings of an osprey have been rare since mid-May. NS Power and the Museum of Natural History worked with with the Department of Natural Resources to determine what may have happened to Ethel and Oscar.
Nature is unpredictable. There have been reports of osprey in the area of the nest so we will leave the camera running and see nature unfold. If you have any comments, contact us via Twitter at @nspowerinc or @ns_museum reply with #ospreycam. We'll post more information here as it is available.
NS Power and the Museum are proud of the fan base built by the OspreyCam over the years and we thank everyone for their support for the OspreyCam.
For 12 years, osprey have been returning to build a summer home on a platform constructed by Nova Scotia Power. Through this video stream, viewers may have the opportunity to watch nest building, egg laying, incubation, hatching, and feeding and fledging of the osprey chicks. Please keep in mind that the camera is to observe these wild birds in their natural environment.
