This live camera is broadcasting the ospreys breeding on a platform at Island Beach State Park, New Jersey.

The osprey is the second most widely distributed raptor species after the peregrine falcon and can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Their habitat includes almost any expanse of shallow, fish-filled water, including rivers, lakes, reservoirs, lagoons, swamps, and marshes. The area in which they choose to nest must have an adequate supply of accessible fish within a maximum of about 12 miles of the nest. They are so well adapted to catching fish and have nostrils which can be closed during the dive into the water and reversible outer toes and backwards facing scales on the talons to give a better grasp of the fish. Ospreys may live to 15 to 20 years.
