ospreys on a nest in delaware


More info: Cape Henlopen State Park is situated at the mouth of the Delaware Bay and has over 6 miles of coastline. The “Point” of Cape Henlopen, is where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocea.

Cape Henlopen State Park has a diverse collection of habitats making up the coastal ecosystem. Barrier dune, coastal beaches, and maritime forest are home to many species of plants and animals.

In 2003 the Park and the Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park, started planning for the Osprey Camera – a continuous, real-time closed circuit television camera monitoring the nest of two local ospreys and their offspring. In 2007, with a combination of funds from the state and fundraising efforts by the Friends this joint project came to fruition with the installation of the camera focused on the Osprey nest located on the SPI Pharma tower adjacent to the Park entrance. The live feed went online in April 2007
