This cam was down every time I checked it this season and last. Today I found it ON with two osplets doing very well:

[NOTE: I lurk the osprey cam updates, but seldom have anything to add. So thanks to all for reports!]

Thanks, CC!  Amazing how many cams there are now - and it seems more are popping up every day!

Do you know anything about the history of this nest?  Were they successful last season?

The cam did not seem to be operational last year, so I don't know what happened. I noticed the cam maybe 10 years ago - it was an old still capture cam, then they recently replaced it with the streaming cam. I'll see if I can find any other news that I have forgotten, such as if Rob Bierregard ever banded any birds from this nest - I seem to remember he did in the past.

That is why I love this webspace - it is such a great aggregator for all the nest news!  happy

Well yes, Bierregaard TAGGED four birds (Conanicus '05, Comet '06, Katy '09, Neale '10) from RI in the past, and the Conanicut Island Raptor Project itself was started by Chris Powell  10 years ago. Conanicus perished in 2007 on his migration back home over Cuba. Others died before completing their first migration.

BTW, I was wrong - there are THREE chicks in that nest this year!  mhihi

Hi PattiO - just noticed your post after I checked in on the cam today. Yes, you can see the size difference, and a few times I have looked in (when the cam was working!) I have seen some aggression even as the chicks are growing larger, so I think fish is not as plentiful on the nest as on some other nests, for some reason. But they all seem to be thriving regardless of competition, so I am not worried. Nice to see the cam picture this year.
