Nesting Diaries

8:30 a.m. Because I committed to reporting on every osprey nest west of Morristown and north of Trenton, I checked out this newly registered nest. What I found was an adult female trying to enjoy a nice, big fish for breakfast and being harassed by 3 aggressive ravens. She was perched on a local power pole which was about 50-70 yards from another local power pole which supported a few sticks. This location is less than a 1/4 mile from the "Rt 31/Payne Rd #7823" cell tower nest which was completely cleaned off over the winter. The pair which had lost its nest over the winter had been quite productive producing 3 chicks last season. It is possible that the pair from that location, #7823, made a feeble attempt to rebuild here dropping a few sticks on this local pole. It was obvious that not much nest building has taken place. There is another substantial nest about 1.5 miles north on Rt. 31, on a cell tower beside the Clinton Township municipal building, but I have yet to see osprey or for that matter, any birds there, thus I will not register this nest on Osprey Watch until I have confirmation that an osprey pair is actually nesting there (beside the Clinton Twp building). I wonder where the pair evicted from the Rt 31/Payne Rd tower has ended up this season.
