Nest Location Description: The Osprey of Terrapin Cove. Terrapin Cove is the site of an abandoned marina on the Maurice River in SNJ. Now it is home to Osprey, a Purple Martin Colony and Diamondback Terrapins. The same osprey pair has nested her in 2010, 2011 and 2012. They are confirmed by their bands placed by Jane Galetto. Also on site is a boat ramp used by the Diamondback Terrapin each year to access land to lay eggs. There is a growing Purple Martin colony with roughly 40 pair in gourds.
