Osprey Nation

2021
More than 200 volunteers overcame arduous circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic to document 510 active Osprey nests in 2020, the most since Connecticut Audubon’s Osprey Nation project began in 2014.

The volunteers’ work, and the continued revival of the Osprey population from near extinction 50 years ago, is detailed in “Osprey Nation Report for the 2020 Season.”

The goal of Osprey Nation is to create a long-term record of data that will give the conservation community a better understanding of the health of Connecticut’s Osprey population.
