Home Sweet Home!

After a winter in South America, our happy osprey pair, Rachel and Steve (named after Rachel Carson, and Dr. Stephen Kress) have found their way back home to the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine’s Muscongus Bay!

Rachel’s distinct markings on the back of her head are shown in this photo collage. We’ll be keep updating you with more photo and views as the day progresses!

Stay tuned to Explore.org to see if we can catch a glimpse of them mating!
