Introducing the Osprey Cam

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) recently introduced its “Osprey Cam,” where you can see a family of ospreys nesting in Masonville Cove.

Published May 06, 2015

The osprey is a fish-eating bird, often seen around the Chesapeake Bay. In the ‘50s and ‘60s, its population was in serious decline. But today, with the ban of the pesticide DDT and the help of artificial osprey nests, the population is thriving.
 
The stars of FWS’s new Osprey Cam recently laid their first egg. The hatchling is expected to arrive sometime in mid-May, so be sure to check back over the following weeks.
