VIMS Osprey Cam

Enjoy a live view of our "fish hawks"

Note: This video feed is from a camera in a temporary, distant location. When we receive the wireless bridges that we need to move the camera to its permanent location, hopefully the week of March 25th,  the live video feed will have less glare and be of significantly higher magnification, with a clearer view into the nest.

Watch real-time images of an osprey family during their annual nesting and breeding season on the shores of Chesapeake Bay. The images—brought to you by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science—come from a nesting platform in the waters of York River immediately in front of  VIMS' campus in Gloucester Point, Virginia. The nest site gives the resident ospreys easy access to fishing grounds on the York River, a major tributary of Chesapeake Bay.


If the image is dark, it is night-time on the campus of the VIMS campus in Gloucester Point, Virginia. We are in the U.S. Eastern time zone.
