The C.G. ATON had been wiped clean of all nest material sometime since last July, but yesterday 2 ospreys showed on on the tower for the first time this year.
Today, one day later, nest material sticks are now showing on the tower platform. they weren't there yesterday.
This isn't a nest yet, but it sure is a good start!
No bird activity observed.
Pictures #6 and #9 are not pictures of nest 4407, and should be deleted from the site.

Another good year - 2 fledgings to report
Forgot to provide updates. Chicks hung out visiting nest in August. Saw an adult there the first week of September. Nest is now vacant.

I've been watching this nest everyday on my commute on NJ Transit train! Dad is a good fisherman...chicks looking good. They have been flapping their wings getting ready to fledge.
