See the Wild Ospreys
Sandpoint’s 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. Visitors can visit the park any time to observe the ospreys, easily spotted in their nests atop to of the light standards in mid field.
Additionally, the ospreys can be viewed online via a live web installed above one of the nests and maintained by the City of Sandpoint in partnership with the community website Sandpoint Online, Avisita and Northland Conmmunications. If it’s the season, you can see them right now at SandpointOspreys.com.
