LIVE WEBCAM - URBAN OSPREYS IN NEW YORK
In New York, there are two main breeding populations, one on Long Island and the other in the Adirondack Mountains. Within its range, the osprey prefers to make its home along the coastline, and on lakes and rivers.
The osprey is probably the longest studied and monitored raptor in New York. The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) monitors the status and productivity of the majority of New York's osprey population. Each year, both ground and aerial surveys are conducted to document osprey nests in the state.
Ospreys are typically in New York State from April to September. Some migrate to South America for the winter.
