Live look at the osprey nest at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont, Colorado.The osprey cam is positioned over the nest giving an incredible look into the nesting practices of the migratory osprey bird. In the spring of 2003, this osprey pair began nesting on a light pole at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and returned each year.The nests have to be wide enough to support up to six full-sized birds.
We can provide you with educational materials to support learning about osprey and other wildlife in Boulder County.
