Osprey reported at the nest site today
one bird sitting on the platform, no other birds around
I got out on the flats today by boat and there were three fledglings on the nest and taking flight.
checked the nest today; still only can be pretty sure of two chicks
hard to see because it is so far from land, but it appears at least two nestlings
nest is active but is too far to see what's in it. Hopefully can get out by boat again
both birds at the nest but too far to see any small chicks
incubating female, male nearby
NJSA installed a platform near this location and there is a pair building a nest on it
We went out by boat to check on this site. A platform has been installed nearby and a nest of sticks placed on it, but the pair was still perched on the site of the original nest
The structure seems to be gone, with just the base left and there were some sticks on the platform, but not much of a nest.
I went past this nest yesterday on the NJ Turnpike and got a good look. No nest unfortunately
It appears the nest is gone but there was an adult at the nest
I have found a place from a county park where I can see this nest, probably fairly well with a scope. I could see a couple of Ospreys on the nest with my 600mm lens on my camera.
I got a report from someone who was out in the marsh on a kayak (Chris Takacs) who reports what he thinks are two nestlings.
This is a new nest built on the MERI CO2 station. It appears that there are young but they are still too small to see at this great distance.
