FAQ ABOUT THE OSPREY AND THE CAMERA

Q: The camera's down! What's happening?
A: 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. If you notice it's down for an extended period of time, you can email ct@audubon.org to let us know.

Q: What's that shiny thing in the nest?
A: Sometimes, you may notice trash in the Osprey nest. Unfortunately, Osprey are attracted to bright, shiny items like balloons and food wrappers. This serves as a good reminder for us humans—please don’t litter!

Q: Who owns or operates your Audubon Live! cameras?
