The osprey have flown back into town and Osprey Cam is live again

The camera has improvements and there is a new camera on the James Bridge near Newport News that features peregrine falcons.

Andy Thompson of Richmond Outside dropped us a line to let us know the osprey are back at their nesting site and the Osprey Cam is busy recording their daily life. Don’t forget they have names now, Maggie and Walker.

And the osprey cam is back, as well, with some sweet upgrades. This year we’ve added audio, so you can hear the birds’ vocalizations, and infrared for nighttime viewing. It’s going to be a lot of fun again, and it’s all thanks to the Friends of the James River Park, whose support continues to make this effort a reality

Bryan Watts at the Center for Conservation Biology invited us to put up a peregrine falcon cam on the James River Bridge linking Newport News to Isle of Wight County. Last year there were less than 30 nesting pairs of peregrine falcons in Virginia. You can follow both cams — the falcons and the ospreys side by side at
