PLEASE NOTE: We regret to inform you that the Osprey Cam is down for the season. After we lost the live feed, the Utility Co. confirmed that there is no signal coming from the camera and we cannot replace the camera without disturbing the osprey. We are looking into options for next year.
The Henry L. Ferguson Museum LIVE Osprey Cam.
The Osprey Cam on the Main Road east of Middle Farms Flats (Driving Range) was re-installed atop its pole by the FI Utility Co. and went LIVE on March 9, 2021.
The Museum web cam connects viewers to the intimate life cycle of our osprey neighbors. Watch the unfolding action over time as the eggs hatch, the male delivers eagerly awaited food to the nest, and the female broods the young. Approximately 55 days after hatching, the chicks will fledge with feathers and wing muscles that are developed enough for flight. We hope that this window on their world will inspire further conservation efforts on Fishers Island.
