    As Environmental Jim O'Neill of The Record writes in today's editions, there appears to be a very good chance of a successful Osprey nest in Kearny this spring — the first in recent memory, and only the second along the lower Hackensack in decades. The other is in Jersey City near the PSE&G plant.

     The Record's story, which also goes into fascinating detail about the Common Ravens of Laurel Hill in Secaucus, is here.  It's an excellent read.
