Greenbelt's OspreyCam is located in Gloucester, MA on Greenbelt salt marsh near LobstaLand Restaurant. The resident Osprey are Annie and Squam, who are currently raising one chick.
History: In 2017 a pair of young Osprey took up residence on the LobstaLand platform in July/August and made a small nest. In 2018 they returned in April, stayed until
August and built a large nest but never laid eggs. We call this a "house-keeping pair"- almost always a young pair learning the ropes.
In 2019, the pair returned in April to the nest and produced a clutch of 3 eggs. At some point one egg disappearred - it was probably broken accientally by the adults while incubating.
July 1 Update - On June 12 one egg hatched and the second never hatched and was eventually removed. The chick is growing rapidly (about 3 weeks old) and doing very well as a spoiled only
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
