Kids in the Nest just sent us a ton of new equipment and we hope to have eight camera systems running by the end of the year. A HUGE thank you to them for their incredibly generous support. The pair of osprey at this new cam are located at the Taste of Maine Restaurant, in Woolwich Maine, and if you are ever driving past them on Route one be sure to stop in and see the birds on a 42 inch plasma TV! And they have great food too!
Last year this pair raised a chick, despite the fact that the female had an injury and was found hopping around on the ground. I will get the full story and post it soon. Both the male and female have been visiting the nest site, but like the eagles, a disruption in nesting the year before may make them take a year off.
At the moment you will see some wavy lines moving through the image. This is coming from interference and we know the problem and are working on clearing it up. This camera does not have sound, we will install it next year. I will also be setting up a dedicated blog for this web cam.
We also intend in getting the other osprey cam up and running. It was struck by lightening last year and the camera may be completely dead, but we are working on it.
Please let me know if you see any activity.
