The nest is located on the Monmouth County side of Whale Creek, just off Ocean Boulevard and across from the fishermen's parking lot at Cliffwood Beach in Aberdeen Township, New Jersey. Besides going to the shore and parking to go view the nest, there is a viewing stand with a NJ State Park interpretive sign and bench you can sit on along the Kavanaugh Trail in Cheesequake State Park. The wooded trail is accessible from Lakeshore Drive not far from the Aberdeen Twp Maintenance Center on Lenox Road. A wooden archway has the trail name marked at the street edge. The trail is new and can be pretty muddy after a rain, so wear proper foot gear. There is a description of the trail, creek, et al at Aberdeen NJ Life blog.

This nesting platform overlooks Keyport Harbor from Matawan Point in Cliffwood Beach. Take Cliffwood Avenue to South Concourse, make a right onto Beach Drive. Continue straight on unpaved surface into Aberdeen Twp mulch center until you reach a grassy meadow. The platform is straight ahead across the field. A stand of trees blocks your view of the harbor on your left.

Installed in November 2013. Pallet nest
Substrate: Communications tower
Added by Ben Wurst over 1 year ago
Last activity: 4 months ago
The nest is at the top of a tall communications tower at Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L)'s Wilson Avenue sub-station. The tower is immediately behind the sub-station. The nest is best viewed from the lawn on the left side of the building. I parked in the visitors' parking lot off Wilson but the office was closed at the time. Wilson Avenue has no shoulder, so don't expect to park on the side of the road. The Hudson Trail crosses Wilson about 50 ft away, so you might consider making the nest part of a hike on the trail. Wilson begins at Route 79 at the Brass Rail (former Poet's Inn) restaurant.
