One bird visible next to the nest. There could be another in the nest, but it is so big at this point that sitting birds are difficult to see

The pair has returned and were working on the nest this morning

one bird bringing sticks to the nest

07/01/2017 by jmac
no activity in or around the nest for the hour and a half that I watched. I would have to think the nest failed for some reason.

05/26/2017 by jmac
watched the nest for a while today. the male brought fish and the female fed chick/chicks.

04/01/2017 by jmac
No sign of any birds yet

08/09/2016 by jmac
visited the nest today by boat with the Bergen County Audubon S. The chicks have fledged and were probably among the many Ospreys present on the rive today

07/09/2016 by jmac
It appears that there are three nestlings, not two. They are almost as large as the parents so it is hard to tell, but the white speckling on their backs and the buffy coloring on their napes indicate that the three of them are nestlings

06/19/2016 by jmac
Could clearly see two large chicks with the mother today. There was possibly a third, smaller chick under the mother who was shading them from the sun. The male was perched nearby

06/12/2016 by jmac
Clearly see two chicks at least

06/08/2016 by jmac
Could clearly see a chick in the nest today. Also saw one of the birds still bringing sticks to the nest.

05/22/2016 by jmac
This is now a large nest with an incubating female and her apparent mate on a tower near by. No sign of the old nest on the swing bridge or the peregrines that had taken it over.

06/22/2014 by Kristen3159
Could view at least one chic today.
