Question: If I remember correctly a new nest platform for ospreys was built a few years ago away from the one occupied by geese. Is there a chance for a camera in the new place?


Answer:

Yes! That camera is up and running now! There are two live cams were you can (potentially) view the Charlo osprey: Osprey Nest – Charlo Montana

As of April 14, 2022, one of our Osprey has returned and has been seen on the cam at the platform (we think it was maybe Charlie, the male).


Osprey- Canada Goose at Rogers Place

This Osprey platform is where Charlotte and Charlie nested in 2021. It is currently occupied by nesting Canada Geese, who as of April 14, 2021, have somewhere around 9 or 10 eggs in the nest. Since they have eggs already, the Osprey probably won’t be able to evict them and we’re hoping this means the Osprey will use the “Osprey Nest- Charlo Montana” cam platform. Once the geese hatch, they’ll leave the platform and the Osprey will probably use this as a place to hang out when they need a rest away from their chicks.
