Osprey Nest Cam – LoLo, MT

Your watching a live video cam of wild Osprey named Swoop and Harriet.

The nest is located 45 feet off the ground on the top of a pole. Nesting season is from April to Early August. After the Osprey leave for migration the ranch owners install a bird feeder station on the nest perch.

You will see all kinds of birds including raptors, geese, squirrels and more. The feeder station comes down in spring right before the osprey are about to return.

So what do you all think about this female? Is it Harriet? I have been looking at old you tube videos and I think her necklace is heavier than Harriet.

I hope it’s only bad weather slowing her return. Wonder how long he’ll wait before finding a new mate. If he does, hope he brings her to this nest.

Come on Harriet. You are one the true matriarchs in the osprey world. Learned so much about a good osprey parent from you over the years. Swoop and all of us are waiting.

If this is Swoop, he chased the two geese away as they were in the nest and left in a hurry just before Swoop landed,

Poor Swoop, he has never had to wait for her before.

Harriet usually arrives first. Think this is Swoop, her mate. Harriet is late.
