Pitkin County's osprey cam has been turned off. Efforts to repair the camera feed from the ground have been unsuccessful. We will not retrieve the camera from the pole until the birds have departed for the season so as not to disturb them. It's possible the eggs were not viable, as they had not hatched by the end of the typical incubation period.
We apologize for the malfunction, which was apparently caused by lightning. We will give it another try next year and hope for great images of osprey chicks in the nest.
