Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 19: The Wetlands Institute has an Osprey Cam

Osprey are large raptor birds that are sometimes called the fish hawk. They hunt fish, and are beautiful to watch.

They also love the Jersey Shore.

The Wetlands Institute, which is on the causeway between Route 9 and Stone Harbor, has set up an Osprey Cam where you can watch two locals - Hali and Luke - as they nest. It's fascinating. Who knew birds could be so interesting?
