Audubon Connecticut Osprey Observations Facebook Contest

Audubon Connecticut is pleased to announce that Lesley Graham of Ivoryton, Connecticut is the winner of our spring 2017 Osprey Observations Facebook Contest. Lesley posted that her favorite Osprey Cam moment was on April 13, 2017, when she was checking on the nest cam and witnessed the female laying an egg. Lesley also shared a screen shot capturing the moment.

Lesley loves being outdoors, enjoying nature. With a job that allows her to be outdoors 90% of the time, she gets to see a lot of cool things, including Osprey. "I always get excited to see an Osprey that has returned to its nest for a new season, usually late March," said Lesley. "I really get such joy from watching them. Their chirps, whistles, and fishing skills are awesome. To be able to watch the Osprey family in Greenwich on the live cam is very educational and exciting. I can't thank you enough for the opportunity to be able to witness the life of these excellent birds and also for the cozy coat that I won from the Facebook contest."

Lesley also loves hiking, kayaking, and taking nature photographs. We hope that her new Audubon Patagonia fleece will keep her warm during her adventures. Congratulations Lesley! Thanks for tuning into the Osprey cam and for your shared dedication to nature!
