Cam Now Live
This my first post on our new osprey cam blog. The camera is located at the Taste of Maine Restaurant in Woolwich, Maine. If you are passing by on route one stop by and see the birds on a 42 inch plasma TV, have a bite to eat, and see the nest in person. This cam has no sound (we hope add sound next year), but the nest can been watched at night. At the moment there is a little interference in the image which we hope to fix in the next day or so.
Kids in the Nest generously provided us with the equipment for this camera. A huge thank you to them!
Last year the birds nested and hatched out one chick. Unfortunately the females was injured last year and taken with her chick to Chewonki to be rehabilitated. They were both successfully released. This year both the male and female are back and have been seen regularly at the nest site. Although the disruption last year can lead birds to take a year off or cause a mate switch, there still is a very good opportunity for the birds to nest.
Please comment on if you see the birds.
