Summary Statistics

Raptor biologists assess the health of osprey populations by looking at several reproductive parameters. The table below is a live calculation based on activity data entered by Osprey Watch volunteers. Reproductive rates from 0.8 to 1.2 are minimum values to sustain a population. The higher these values are the healthier the osprey population. These rates vary based on age-to-first-reproduction, survivorship rates, and many other factors.
