Ospreys on cam

The Ospreys are back at the Coastal Center at Milford Point! The pair has already commenced nest building for the 2011 season. These enormously popular birds are a great sight to watch out the windows of the Coastal Center. However, you can enjoy them from home, too. If you go to this link it will take you directly to a live cam on the nest in the marsh at Milford Point. The viewing quality should be better than ever this year.

We asked them to please keep the camera clear and view unobstructed, as sometimes they get a bit overzealous in their construction. However, we will do our best to help them out with this task. If you want to get a sense of the history of the nest you can visit the Osprey cam page on our website here:

It takes a lot of time and money to maintain and operate this camera. If you want to help keep it running smoothly we would greatly appreciate your donations which can be made by clicking here. Thank you all so much for your support. I know the Ospreys are thankful, too.

  1. When I worked in Stamford, I always liked looking across the harbor to see an osprey nest.
