Thanks to CAL04 for bringing this cam and the sister cam at the Dunrovin Ranch to our attention. The nest is located in Missoula, Montana, on the Clark Fork River. The pair successfully raised two chicks in 2010. They laid three eggs in 2011 and all hatched, but unfortunately the weather made it hard for them to find fish, so only the oldest chick survived to fledge. There's additional historical data available on the Project Osprey website, and on our thread from 2011 - link.
The 2012 season did not get off to a good start. Our female returned April 4th but the male didn't and was determined lost. A new male came into the picture on May 6th and three eggs were laid by this pair, hatched and all three chick fledged.

The Hellgate Cam has begun streaming. Hooooray!!!!

This was posted on Facebook about an hour ago:


Hi all,
It's almost time for the ospreys to arrive! The first birds should show up toward the end of March. Both Dunrovin and Hellgate nest cameras are now back online again. Erick, I, our friends at the Cornell Bird Lab and of course the hosts of the cameras at Riverside Health Care Center and Dunrovin Ranch are working to make everybody's interactive experience as successful or better than last year, preferably with a little less time commitment from the two of us. Stay tuned!
