FAQ ABOUT THE OSPREY AND THE CAMERAS
Q: The camera's down! What's happening?
A: The cameras are powered by solar energy. Expect streaming interruptions during low-light conditions, overcast, and unfavorable weather—when the cameras have not received enough sunlight to power up.
Q: What's that shiny thing in the nest?
A: Sometimes, you may notice trash in an Osprey nest. Unfortunately, Ospreys 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?
A: All cameras are operated courtesy of Menunkatuck Audubon Society (MAS). Learn more about the MAS cameras here.
