An Osprey Homecoming


An Osprey Homecoming is a stunning tribute to the love and determination of a group of people committed to restoring the Osprey, a species that once teetered on the brink of extinction, to southern Michigan. The documentary centers around the touching story of “C09”, a young male Osprey released during the Osprey Reintroduction Program of Southern Michigan at Kensington Metropark.

While the Program Team cheers for C09 and his family’s survival, the birds struggle with the day-to-day challenges of living in an increasingly inhospitable world. Spectacular footage of Osprey nest life, dramatic hunting sequences and exciting chase scenes thrill the viewer with nature’s amazing beauty and often cold-hearted ethics. Cleverly interwoven with facts, outstanding wildlife footage and subtle subplots, An Osprey Homecoming is a beautiful and compelling story that emphasizes the interconnection of all living things and the delicate balance that exists between humanity and nature.
