Last year, a pair of ospreys had a successful nest in Kearny for the first time in the post-DDT era, and began New Jersey's Osprey Nest #042-A-002 — one of roughly 430 in New Jersey.
Following up on a report from Ray Duffy, we checked out the nest from Laurel Hill County Park earlier this week and found both ospreys on the nest (above).
They eventually flew off together and circled each other. One then headed off to Saw Mill Creek Wildlife Management Area to look for lunch.
