Once again, we are speeding past this nest on the GSP. I did not stop but am reporting that there is definitely osprey nesting going on here. One of these years I will have to schedule a trip down here to see if I can get chick counts to add to the NJ Osprey Project's numbers!

We are just passing by on the GSP! There was more than one osprey up there. This nest has been active a long time, but no one seems to be reporting regularly on the results!

The site still seems to have osprey present. I only note that they are present. I have not stopped nor looked carefully with a scope or binoculars. I have no idea if this pair had chicks.

12:49 p.m. We are traveling north on the Garden State Parkway so I pull over on off the travel lane, between the exit ramp and the on ramp. It is not a place I would want to stay at long, but I am able to get a few photos. It appears there is at least one chick in this nest...and an adult.

Osprey still seem to be present at this nest site. Again, it was difficult to stop as I traveled south on the GSP. This site could be seen if one were quick enough to pull over, but difficult to do this from the express lanes. Possibly easier from the northbound side. Anyone who chose to report regularly would have to investigate the best viewing place.

I noticed as I passed on the GSP driving south that there were two adults at this nest. I did not stop so I can't say what is going on, just that the osprey appear to be present at this nest.
