Welcome to Audubon Connecticut’s Live Osprey Cam! This live video provides a unique, genuine, and close-up view of Osprey, a migratory bird that breeds in Connecticut in the spring and summer. During the breeding season, you will have a chance to observe nature in action through the daily lives of the Osprey occupying this platform as they build their nest, feed, incubate their eggs, and care for their young.
Thank you for visiting! Stay tuned to see what happens next! You might even see other birds or interesting natural occurrences during other times of the year!
Please note, this camera is powered by solar energy. Expect streaming interruptions during low-light conditions, overcast, and unfavorable weather—when the camera has not received enough sunlight to power up.
The installation of this camera was made possible by a generous anonymous donor. Additional in-kind assistance was provided by the Riverside Yacht Club and Atlantic Marine Construction, along with the Menunkatuck Audubon Society and Audubon volunteers. Thank you to everyone involved for bringing this camera to life—for all to enjoy!
