2011 Missoula Montana Osprey Cam

Below are a few clips from the 2011 Missoula Montana Osprey Cam. Unfortunately there was a severe storm late in the month and the male Osprey was lost.

Ospreys usually nest near water in a tall tree or on a tower. These locations are exposed to all the elements. Tough conditions can include: sunlight which can sometimes produce scorching temperatures, thunderstorms and rain. During these unpleasant conditions the osprey are focused on protecting their young.  When the weather clears, it is back to feeding those hungry young birds.
