Osprey Cam

The Ospreys are back at the Milford Point Coastal Center and you can watch them 24 hours a day no matter what the weather.

 

Nest-building started late in the day on April 4 and resumed on April 5.

Ospreys were driven to the edge of extinction in the 1960s and early 1970s because of the widespread use of the pesticide DDT. They were listed as endangered and protected by the Endangered Species Act. After DDT was banned, the Osprey population began to thrive.

The Connecticut Audubon Society began its Osprey Nation stewardship program in 2014 to collect data on Ospreys that nest in our state. With more than 200 volunteers, it has grown to become one of the largest citizen science projects in New England.
