Wildlife abounds at and around the sprawling grounds of Mission Inn Resort. And as Central Florida eases into spring, you can count on ospreys returning to their nests atop towering posts at the resort.
Each year, breeding pairs of the large fish hawks come back to their nests to hatch and raise their broods. Have you ever seen inside an osprey nest? Mission Inn’s OspreyCam provides a close-up look at an osprey family. Get a bird’s-eye glimpse of these regal raptors at missioninnresort.com/osprey.
A number of weeks after hatching, young ospreys will have grown strong enough to take flight and venture out on their own. And next year the parents, who normally mate for life, will return to the same nest to raise another brood. We will await their return!
