I have modified the name and description of this nesting site. No nesting osprey spotted at this time but neighbors say the lights have been used in the past.
My wife and I went looking for this nest today and saw no sign of it. We asked a couple who lived on Cedar, who said something like an aluminum lamp pole was placed at the end of the street some time ago but the birds never took to it because too many people were around. The birds seemed to prefer the tall lights over the basketball court nearby, but nothing there now. It seems the aluminum installation went with Superstorm Sandy as there is nothing there now. I recommend removing this nest from your system.
