Moraine Osprey Cam

Moraine Osprey Cam

Welcome to Moraine Preservation Fund Osprey Camera – The camera is brought to you by MorainePreservationFund.Org. It provides a Live Stream of the osprey nest at Moraine State Park in Butler County, PA. 

VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED: In the early morning of June 30th a great horned owl attacked the chicks and unfortunately, none of the chicks survived. Nature can be cruel. The cam will remain up to view how Mom, Dad and the nest proceed. Education and learning are one of the purposes of the cam,  that includes both the good and the bad. For those who are sensitive to this scenario, you may want to step away from the cam.  

About the Osprey Camera: Watch as osprey nest along the glistening shoreline of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. This area has one of the most significant clusters of osprey nests in Pennsylvania. The osprey, also commonly known as a “fish hawk”, stalks its prey by hovering above the water then diving feet first to snag its prey. Ospreys fit in well on impoundments with good fish populations and artificial structures where they can build their bulky stick nests. In an effort to help this recovering species, The Moraine Preservation Fund (MPF) established an Osprey Reintroduction Program in June of 1993. It was a huge success and resulted in 99 fledglings over a four year period. The fledglings were raised from the hacking tower at Moraine State Park. MPF is doing wonderful things for the park and continues to help the osprey population grow. A special thank you to ITG Networks and PixCams for their assistance in making this project a success.
