FAQ ABOUT THE OSPREY AND THE CAMERAS

Q: The camera I'm watching is down! What's happening?
A: These cameras are 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?
A: Learn more about the cameras here. All cameras except our Greenwich camera are operated courtesy of Menunkatuck Audubon Society.
