SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) - A new osprey cam has been installed in northern Idaho to enhance the enjoyment of online viewers who number in the tens of thousands of page views each month.

The pan-tilt-zoom camera on the 100-foot high nest at War Memorial Field in Sandpoint can shoot in infrared so the nest can be viewed at night.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1CICjyu) in a story on Friday that it also has a microphone.

Sandpoint Online’s Chris Bessler says the camera has a zoom lens that can view a second nest nearby.

Ospreys have flown south this year, so the camera won’t start streaming video until March.

Lake Pend Oreille Cruises donated money to help upgrade the camera.
