LOLO- A pair of osprey chicks are about to hatch in Lolo and thanks to a new and improved web cam they're drawing a worldwide audience.
The University of Montana and Cornell University are teaming up to research how the Clark Fork River basin is affecting the birds.
A by-product of their research comes in our online viewing pleasure as Dunrovin Ranch granted access to the nest, and now people all over the world can watch Ozzie and Harriet become proud parents.
"What we're doing is actually bringing groups of kids out to nest as we bring the chicks down and band them. Which is always great," UM Geosciences professor Hekio Langner explained.
Dunrovin Ranch owner SuzAnne Miller tells us that once the chicks hatch, they are planning on holding a naming contest for the little birds. We'll keep you updates on where and when you'll be able to cast your ballot online.
