OspreyWatch is a global community of observers focused on documenting breeding osprey. There is no charge to participate and we welcome new volunteers to the program.

We recommend monitoring a nest 1-4 times a month. There are three ways to enter your observations on the OspreyWatch website.
Log an activity at the nest. These are milestone events in the breeding chronology of the nest. Data entered in the activity report forms will be tabulated for the annual project report and used to calculate breeding statistics. Learn more about each activity on the Osprey Basics page.
Add photos of activities at the nest.
While Activity Report data is the most important for our research, you can use diary entries to log additional details of your observations, when needed.
