Message from the Fortis webcam page:

"FortisAlberta installed this Osprey web cam on an existing nesting platform near Canmore to give our customers a close-up look at osprey nesting activities.

The Company’s best practice for Raptor Nest Management is an important part of FortisAlberta’s Avian Protection Plan and highlights our commitment to environmentally-responsible business practices. FortisAlberta protects osprey and other birds of prey by actively discouraging nest building on energized power poles and by removing osprey from live poles to pre-constructed nesting platforms on poles installed nearby. Our success with this best practice has seen more than 35 poles installed throughout the service territory including 4 in the Bow Valley."


The camera is located on the Bow River at Canmore which is 88 km west of Calgary Alberta.

Be warned -- this camera has sound and the osprey are loud !

There are 3 eggs on the nest.

Okay, Dad flew in with a piece of bark so it's obviously Mom on the eggs.
Dad stayed for a couple of minutes then took off again.

Great to see this cam up and running again - and thanks, Judy and Karen, for getting together to set up this thread!

I've been updating my osprey nest spreadsheet (http://www.judyb-eagles.com/eagles2015/ ... o_2015.htm - still very much a work in progress) - and found when the eggs were laid:

May 13, 1:10 pm
May 16, 10:47 am
May 19, before 8:53 am

I wouldn't expect a fourth - but it could still happen!
