We are pleased to announce that the Osprey Cam is live! After a long trip to South or Central America for the winter, Tom is due back any day now, followed shortly by Audrey. Other osprey have been sighted in the area, so be on the lookout for Tom! The first person who takes a screenshot of Tom on the nest and posts it to Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ChesapeakeConservancy) will win a free osprey cam t-shirt!
Like last year, the Crazy Osprey Family will share behind-the-scenes information about the nest, as well as educational information from Dr. Spitzer, the osprey biologist, through this blog. Check back often.
The Osprey Cam is streamed through the Chesapeake Conservancy’s Wildlife Outreach and Education Program. Special thanks to Skyline Technology Solutions, who is managing the video stream, Earth Security Electronics, who installed and set up the camera, Investigative Options Inc., for maintaining the camera, and the Shared Earth Foundation.
