This is a wild osprey nest and anything can happen. While we hope that healthy osprey chicks will end up fledging from the nest each season, things like sibling rivalry, predators, and natural disaster can affect this osprey family and may be difficult to watch.
As hard as it may be to see anything happen to our osprey, we will let nature take its course and not intervene. Operating costs of this webcam have been donated in loving memory of Eileen Farrell by her family. Want to support the webcam and our many other programs?
