Good views of the nest by boat. No fledglings on nest but Osprey working on the nest.
was out by boat today and could see what looked like a chick on the far side of the structure in the nest
couldn't see any activity but there was an Osprey and a new nest two towers over
one Osprey on the tower over the nest. Nest not visible from the east side looking west
saw a bird go to the nest with a branch and disappear behind the structure. This nest should be observed by boat to see what's going on.
one bird on the tower, can't see into the nest from shore.
both birds at the nest today
it's hard to see but I did observe a male bring a fish to the female that got off the nest to accept it, so it has to be active.
It appears that new nesting material has been added, but no sign of Ospreys
visiting the nests by boat with the NJSEA environmentalist today. Good views of the nest which appears to be empty. Ospreys on the tower but not near the nest
There was an Osprey on the tower, but I couldn't see any movement in the nest. This nest is a far distance for viewing and blocked by some metal so it's hard to know for sure what's going on.
I observed Osprey birnging sticks to the nest two weeks ago. Today when the male came to the nest the female got up from the nest so I think it is safe to assume that she is incubating.
no activity for the third visit in a row. I would say this nest failed. There is an eagle nest a few hundred yards to the north on the river. Could be the problem
Osprey bringing fish to the nest and also bringing sticks as I observed for quite a while. I would guess there are young but just can't see much.
An Osprey continues to keep watch nearby on the tower
The nest is hidden behind some steel beams so it's impossible to see whats going on, but an Osprey perched on the structure above the nest so maybe and incubating female
An Osprey bringing branches to the nest
I was told that a pair has been seen on this structure
no activity observerd, but there were Ospreys in the vicinity
I couldn't see any activity today; viewing with a scope
Watched the nest for more than a half hour and didn't see any movement. This is a big, deep nest and probably a half mile from my viewing point so I'm not ready to call it yet. View with a 60x scope.
Osprey appears to be shading chick/chicks on the nest. A second bird brought a fish to the nest while I watched.
Reports that Ospreys were seen bringing sticks. There was a male present when I viewed the nest so it's seems active. Will monitor
I haven't checked this nest yet, but was told by a man who has direct access that there is no activity at this time. Hope to get access soon myself
checked the nest with the scope today. there was a pair of adult birds present, even one feeding in the nest, but I couldn't see any chicks. This is a big nest and quite a distance from where I can observe, but after an hour I would think I would have seen what would be a 6 or 7 week old chick if one were there. I will check again next week.

I could see the nest from across the river at Mill Creek Point Park. It had deteriorated but was rebuilt and there was an Osprey perched on the tower. I couldn't see inside the nest, even with the scope, but it could be occupied. ( after inspecting my photos, I could see in two the raised back of an Osprey, so it is occupied and incubating)
This is a duplicate with 3411
two Osprey perched on the tower, but not near the nest. I don't think this nest is active
No sign of any Ospreys near this nest after 1/2 hour of observation. Possible there is a bird incubating that is not visible
On a pontoon boat trip sponsored by the Hackensack Sports Authority and Bergen Audubon and we went past this nest. There were two Ospreys observered at the nest, but too far to determine if adults or fledglings.
Have seen Ospreys on or near nest twice now. Lots of Peregrine activity as well. Nest failed last year after being washed away by Hurricane Sandy.
