About the Osprey Camera:

Watch as osprey nest along the glistening shoreline of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. This area has one of the most significant clusters of osprey nests in Pennsylvania.

The osprey, also commonly known as a “fish hawk”, stalks its prey by hovering above the water then diving feet first to snag its prey. Ospreys fit in well on impoundments with good fish populations and artificial structures where they can build their bulky stick nests.

In an effort to help this recovering species, The Moraine Preservation Fund (MPF) established an Osprey Reintroduction Program in June of 1993. It was a huge success and resulted in 99 fledglings over a four-year period. The fledglings were raised from the hacking tower at Moraine State Park. MPF is doing wonderful things for the park and continues to help the osprey population grow.
