Nesting Diaries

This tower is abandoned. It is thought that the pair moved across the river to the same electric power lines but on the PA side and is nesting at tower # 7408, Red Cliff Village, right along route 32. That nest in PA (#7408) has 2 healthy chicks in 2022.

This site has been abandoned by the birds. Directly across the Delaware River, on the next high tension tower, in the same line, there is a nest which I believe is occupied by the pair from the NJ tower. They moved. The photos show the NJ tower on the same line as the Red Cliff Village, PA nest. You can see a few sticks remain on the top of this tower where the nest once was.

I checked again and took photos of this empty tower. No nesting here this year, even though a few sticks remain on the top of the tower where a nesting pair built in 2017. No nesting on the PA equivalent tower either this year. (See nest #7408--Red Cliff Village--this 2017 NJ pair could possibly have moved to the tower across the river in PA in 2019. The pair there had 2 chicks in 2019. I did not watch in 2018).

While checking known nests in this area, I stopped on the PA side and through my scope, looked at the tower on the NJ side. It is still empty; no evidence of nest building even though the pair have also abandoned the nest on the equivalent tower on the PA side.

A path through the woods led directly to the tower on the NJ side of the Delaware River. There was nothing on that tower, not even a stick or two of an old nest. This nest is on the PA side of the river. The tower sits right on the road along side a driveway in a resident's front lawn. Not a NJ nest.
