Stream stopped. Failed nesting this year!

Hi All, very sorry for the delayed response on the forum...some miscommunication on our end and I was away for a few days.

Yes, we have stopped the stream of this cam due to limited bandwidth capacity and the fact that the ospreys have failed in their nesting attempt. At this late date in the year it is extremely unlikely that these birds will renest. This, despite observations of birds using the nest and even mating attempts.

As for the camera, it is still installed and we hope that ospreys continue to use it successfully in the future. We are also looking into the possiblity of an additional Ospreycam with audio. Unfortunately, this site doe not present a good chance for audio due to ambient background noise and nearby activity.

All the Best,
