11:05 a.m. I am in the area observing the three NJ nests and one PA nest! Originally, (July 29--the first time I noticed this tower) this large, tall, obviously maintained nest appeared empty. I saw no chicks and no adults. Two days ago, I observed a single chick on this nest and posted photos. Today I observed a single chick calling on the nest and this time I also saw an adult perched on a high tension tower near the nest. I am now thinking that this is, in fact, an active nest with one chick. I have posted photos of the baby and the adult from the north and the south.

I observed this parent-offspring pair for 30 minutes. Neither moved, but the chick called regularly. The last photo is an overview of the post/platform on which the nest is built, and the high tension tower on which the parent is perched. You can just make out the 2 birds as specks in the photo!

When I observed this tower platform today around 1:30 p.m. a single chick was sitting in the nest. The first photo is taken from the same location that I took the photo on 7/29--a driveway to the south. I then followed another driveway to the north of this platform and was able to get a front view of the chick. Nest #7407 is less than a quarter mile away. I saw only 2 of the 3 fledglings on that nest and wonder if this could possibly be the third?? I guess I would have to see a parent bringing prey to a lone osprey chick on this platform to know for sure whether it was occupied.

This nest does not appear to be occupied. I observed it from a driveway to the south of the nest location while reporting on a nearby occupied nest in a high tension tower.
