The osprey is listed as endangered in Illinois. Yet these birds have been nesting since 2009 at Fermilab and during the summer months can be seen soaring over the Fox River in search of fish. Pam Otto, manager of nature programs and interpretive services at the Hickory Knolls Discovery Center, provides an overview of osprey life history and behaviors. The presentation also features photography by Dave Soderstrom, who has devoted considerable time to chronicling the growing presence of osprey in this area.
