Located on the research grounds of the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, our Osprey Nest Cam is a fan favorite of Arb guests. The Osprey come back each Spring and generally lay 1 to 3 eggs in March or April. It takes about 35 days of incubation by both female and male birds until the eggs hatch. The Osprey derive the majority of their diet from fish caught by the male. If you watch the camera long enough, you will see him bring her back a fish! The male also does much of the foraging for nest material and the female will assist with nest building and does most of the egg incubation. By late September, both parents and the hatchlings, who have learned to fly by then, will fly South to warmer temperatures. The parents will return the following year but the yearlings will stay in the south climate for the entire year before returning to the area where they were born to start a family of their own. We hope you enjoy the Osprey Cam!
