Charlo Ospreys Return to the Nest!

April 11 marked the return of Osprey, Charlotte and Charlie, to their Charlo, Montana nest. The nest is located just down the road from the Owl Research Institute and has 24/7 live stream coverage, brought to you by our friends at

Charlotte arrived at 9:49 AM and Charlie was not far behind, arriving at 1:34 PM. They appear to be doing well and getting reacquainted with each other. We are relieved that they are here and claiming the nest as there seemed to be a coveted property in the thriving goose community! Here's to a successful nesting season for beautiful Charlotte and Charlie!
