The Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan is looking for citizen scientists to help locate and monitor Ospreys/Eagles and/or their nests around the Bay of Quinte. The goal is to establish a long-term monitoring program to ensure the Osprey/Eagle populations remain healthy and abundant.

Citizen scientists are being asked to use their smart phones to capture details about Ospreys/Eagles that include: arrival date, nest location, whether the nest is active or not, the number of fledglings and departure date for the fall migration. It’s a simple process.
