12:03 p.m. Two chicks were perched on the edge of the nest. The light was not so good. It is difficult to park along route 32 near the nest. There is a lane leading to a mobile home park just to the south that has room to pull off and park. I found a place to pull in, got out of the car, and got several photos from different angles. I did not see an adult, just the two siblings. They were calling and moving around. One moved out of the nest and perched on an adjacent wire. The other stayed down in the nest and was less visible, but can be seen in the photos if you look carefully.

I monitor a NJ osprey nest from the PA side and see this PA nest driving north on route 32 en route to my observation post. This nest is right across the river from a NJ bald eagle nest which was on a NJ tower of the same power lines, but the pair has moved to a sycamore slightly upstream. This year, the eagles did not incubate but were in the territory. I saw one bird on this osprey nest while driving north at 3:48 p.m. It appears to be an adult (1st photo). It is possible that a chick is mostly hidden behind the adult in the 1st photo. I did not stay long enough to know for sure. Parking is difficult. At 5:43 p.m. there were three on the nest (2nd photo). They appeared to be feeding. It appears to be an adult (which was offering food) standing between its two nestlings. They were not vocalizing. I did not observe either chick fly off the nest, but it is probable that these two are close to fledging. Three have fledged from the nearby NJ nest #7407.
