This nest is on the unused swing bridge itself. There is another nest located right behind it, as well. There is a new pair building a nest in the same place or nearby the nest from several years ago was. There are two other active nests in close proximity to this new nest. Both have incubating hens as of 05.10.17 in 2014 it was taken over by nesting Peregrines; Ospreys nesting on small radio tower nearby.

Carlstadt. This nest is the first nest in Bergen County in decades. It produced at least two young in 2011. No young in 2013. Two Ospreys are on nest now 7/8/14, but so far up radio tower that it is hard to see.

Lift Bridge Nest. This is a starter nest atop the light blue RR Lift Bridge across the Hackensack River. A colleague photographed two young in the nest about 10 days ago but i did not see them on two recent river trips. Both parents were always near the nest on both trips. Nest appeared to have failed in 2013. Saw two adults near nest on 07/02/14. Posted photos.
