The Bald Eagles that displaced the Osprey pair last year, resulting in this new Ospry nest, have now moved to this platform. The Ospreus are back in thier old nest.
Checked the nest today, the chicks are getting big but still a couple of weeks from fledging
Got out to the nest this morning. Clearly could see two small chicks being fed. This was a very late nest
New information is that the nest is active. It appears the female is still incubating, which is possible because this is a very late nest
other observers have informed me that this nest has failed
I finally got to visit this nest today. It is a very skimpy nest which is not surprising considering how late they finally got started. The female was incubating and got up to relieve herself. the male joined her at the nest.
this pair built a nest a few poles down on live wires which had to be remover. PSEG built a better platform and the pair re-nested where the nest blew down. I have yet to get out there to see for myself.
Windy weather and the nest blew down. Apparently the female was incubationg.
This nest is in a restricted area and is difficult to access. I am trying to get permission to monitor the nest from a different access point.
