Osprey Nest Cam 2017: Season Five
Hello bird fans and nest cam enthusiasts! Josie and Elbert are back again in Orange Beach, Alabama for a fifth season of our Osprey Cam. Josie has laid at least one egg at this point and we expect one or two more over the next week. Keep a close watch and see how many you can spot!
Over the past four years we’ve had hurricane winds, an unfortunate (and hilarious) bird poop “white-out” of the camera, and of course four successfully raised broods. Who knows what will happen this year? Keep your eyes on the camera as this wonderfully wild family drama unfolds again.
Have questions or comments about the osprey? Place them in the comments section below and we’ll get back to you as fast as we can.
The Nature Conservancy and its partners are working to restore vital coastal and estuarine habitats throughout the Gulf – oyster reefs, seagrass beds, sand dunes, coral reefs, marshes and bird habitat. This work is critical for re-building Gulf fisheries that are essential to human communities and native wildlife like the osprey.
