Hog Island, Maine: Osprey Nest Webcam

The webcam offers an intimate view of Osprey parents Rachel and Steve's private life and all its drama.


Hog Island's nest cam overlooks Rachel and Steve, a pair of Ospreys now in their fifth year of nesting on the island. The webcam offers an intimate view of their private life and all its drama, including fighting off nest predators and nurturing young chicks. And even though it's billed as an Osprey cam, occasionally other species stop by for their 15 minutes of fame.

The cam is monitored by volunteers at Hog Island Audubon Camp, and hosted online by Explore.org.
