The return of the famed osprey pair to the nest on the WHOI Quissett Campus is a sure sign that spring has almost sprung. Ospreys, which dine almost exclusively on live fish, hover over water at altitudes of 50 to 200 feet. When they spot a tasty-looking fish, they dive feet-first into the water to get their prey. Keep up with the progress of the nesting pair online via the WHOI Osprey Cam.
