On the GSP heading to south Jersey, I can see ospreys on this tower. It is difficult to stop on the GSP! This is an active nest that no one seems to be regularly monitoring. One of these years I might have to make a special trip down to see this nest and the one close by also visible from the GSP.

I see osprey at this tower as we pass at speed. I can see more than one and assume this tower nest is active. No one seems to be reporting on it regularly so the status and number of chicks is not known through the years that it has been reported active.

There appeared to be an osprey still at this nest site. I looked again (traveling south in the express lanes) and one could stop in the zone out of the traffic lanes, with yellow diagonal lines. One would have to anticipate this and plan a stop!

Again, as I passed on the GSP, I noticed multiple osprey at this site. I did not stop so I can't say whether it was an adult pair or an adult with chicks. I did notice this time that there appears to be a possible temporary pull off with yellow diagonal lines, out of the traffic lanes. This is right near the toll plaza. One has a good view of the nest from the toll plaza but if you were to watch regularly and stay at the site for awhile, you would have to explore better viewing posts.

I noticed as I passed on the GSP driving south that there were two adults at this nest. I did not stop so I can't say what is going on, just that the osprey appear to be present at this nest.

There were two osprey at this nest on 4/19/16 at 12:30pm. One bird was perched on the edge of the nest, and the other was perched adjacent to the nest on the tower.

One osprey on the nest, another circling nearby.
