Watched the nest for more than a half hour and didn't see any movement. This is a big, deep nest and probably a half mile from my viewing point so I'm not ready to call it yet. View with a 60x scope.

Osprey appears to be shading chick/chicks on the nest. A second bird brought a fish to the nest while I watched.

Reports that Ospreys were seen bringing sticks. There was a male present when I viewed the nest so it's seems active. Will monitor

I haven't checked this nest yet, but was told by a man who has direct access that there is no activity at this time. Hope to get access soon myself

checked the nest with the scope today. there was a pair of adult birds present, even one feeding in the nest, but I couldn't see any chicks. This is a big nest and quite a distance from where I can observe, but after an hour I would think I would have seen what would be a 6 or 7 week old chick if one were there. I will check again next week.

04/22/2017 by jmac (edit) ( this is a duplicate of nest 3411) I could see the nest from across the river at Mill Creek Point Park. It had deteriorated but was rebuilt and there was an Osprey perched on the tower. I couldn't see inside the nest, even with the scope, but it could be occupied. ( after inspecting my photos, I could see in two the raised back of an Osprey, so it is occupied and incubating)

This is a duplicate with 3411

two Osprey perched on the tower, but not near the nest. I don't think this nest is active

05/29/2016 by jmac
No sign of any Ospreys near this nest after 1/2 hour of observation. Possible there is a bird incubating that is not visible

On a pontoon boat trip sponsored by the Hackensack Sports Authority and Bergen Audubon and we went past this nest. There were two Ospreys observered at the nest, but too far to determine if adults or fledglings.

Have seen Ospreys on or near nest twice now. Lots of Peregrine activity as well. Nest failed last year after being washed away by Hurricane Sandy.
