Osprey Odyssey: Intro to MV Osprey

Back in 1971 when Osprey research started on Martha's Vineyard, there were just 2 active breeding pairs of osprey. Today, there are over 80.

What caused the osprey population to increase on the Vineyard? What do osprey eat? How do they build their nests? Where do they go in the winter?

Dick Jennings who monitors the osprey population across the vineyard will answer these and all of your other questions. Join Mr. Jennings for a presentation about these magnificent birds, followed by a vehicle tour to learn about the natural history of the barrier beach and visit some active osprey nests. 

Complimentary pick-up from the Chappy Ferry available. Pre-registration required.
