The Sandpoint Osprey Cam. Located at Sandpoint’s War Memorial Field on Lake Pend Oreille, the osprey nest you see here was moved in Autumn 2011 to a nesting platform atop a new lighting standard, as part of a major renovation to the field’s lighting and grandstands.
Memorial Field is home to two active osprey nests – as well as scores of community events each year, from soccer, baseball and football games to the annual Festival at Sandpoint summertime music series. From early spring, when the ospreys arrive in Sandpoint following their migration from Central and South America, until they head south in autumn, the ospreys are a ubiquitous presence at the field – occasionally upstaging the human events as they return to their nests carrying a squirming fish, or circle with their distinctive, whistling calls.
