Watch Audubon Boat House Osprey Nest - LIVE.

The favorite nesting spot of ospreys Rachel and Steve, Hog Island has a new live cam! In view of our first Audubon Osprey Cam the Boat House Cam will put us into the nest of a new osprey family.

Hog Island's ospreys spend the winter apart, but when spring comes again the couples reunite and start up where they left off, mating, laying a clutch of 2-3 eggs and raising their chicks to fledge.

Their bonding will lead to upwards of 160 mating attempts through these next few weeks that will eventually produce a clutch of two to four eggs. The eggs will hatch after an incubation period of 35-42 days and both parents will feed themselves and their chicks a fish-only diet. During incubation and chick rearing, the eggs and chicks are under nearly-constant parental watch to keep them safe from predators. About fifty days after hatching, the young begin exercising their wings to take their first practice flights from the nest. In early September, the young will begin their solo journey from Maine, heading south along the Atlantic Flyway, passing through the Caribbean to winter in South America.
