Looking for Osprey in Minnesota

OspreyThe osprey population in the Twin Cities has grown to over 100 known nests since a reintroduction project began in 1984!

The Twin Cities Metro Osprey Watch is monitoring all known Osprey nests in the eight-county metro area as part of a long-term behavioral and productivity study. This has become a big job, and we need your help!

If you see a new osprey nest or ospreys carrying sticks, please send a report to osprey.mn@gmail.com.   If you are interested in volunteering to watch over a nest during the breeding season, please contact us.

Ospreys are increasingly nesting on man-made structures such as cell towers, ball field light poles, transmission towers and tele-phone/power poles, so keep looking up!
