Osprey Cam 2017

They’re late (March 25), but an osprey was observed on the nest platform.  You may recall that the Town of Chesapeake Beach Public Works and CBOCS volunteers erected two osprey platforms during the Spring of 2014.  Last year a camera was placed above and adjacent to the eastern platform just in time for the ospreys’ return on March 17, 2016.  Those ospreys successfully fledged two chicks AFTER the camera was struck by lightning, preventing viewers from observing the fledging (flight development) process.

Check the osprey page (click the button) to view the camera and for osprey facts, etc.

Chesapeake Beach Happenings


Twin Beach Players will present You Can’t Take It With You at the Boys and Girls Club, 9021 Dayton Ave., North Beach, Md., 20714. Come one, come all to the show that is a reminder of what is important in life, and though most of us accept the fact that “You Can’t Take It With You,” we go on living for the mighty buck! Once you have seen the happiness that exists in the Vanderhoff household, you will understand the TRUE meaning of those words. Come share in the craziness of the house with the artist / playwright, the ballerina/candy maker, the printer / xylophone player, the model builder/fireworks constructor and all of their friends who live under one roof even though they are not related. The messes they get themselves into as they converge with the high society Kirby’s creates fun for the entire audience! It’s a show you won’t forget. We truly hope that you will be able to come enjoy, appreciate and encourage others to see this production. The production runs for two consecutive weekends starting Thursday March 30th through April 9th. Tickets or additional information is available at www.twinbeachplayers.com .
