Bay Area residents will get an astonishing view into the life of a pair of Ospreys,
thanks to the launch of our region’s first live streaming Osprey nest camera.
Before nesting began this spring, Golden Gate Audubon Society installed two highdefinition
streaming video cameras at an Osprey nesting spot on the historic Whirley Crane
in Richmond. The live video stream -- viewable at http://SFBayOspreys.org -- will allow
Bay Area residents and people around the world to enjoy intimate views of an Osprey pair
as they raise young over the next several months. The perspective on the nest affords a
close-up view of Osprey family life, while also providing a breathtaking view of S.F Bay
throughout the day. At night, the cameras switch to infrared mode so the sleeptime rituals
of the family will be viewable too.
