Osprey Report

IMG_7264 We visited all three Osprey nests in the Meadowlands District earlier this week, and counted a total of 12 Ospreys. IMG_7100

 Four Ospreys were near the Kearny nest opposite Laurel Hill Park.

Two more were perched just to the south, on a power line just south of the Eastern Spur of the Turnpike on the west side of the Hackensack River.

They appeared to be working on a relatively new nest atop a nearby utility pole. (Left.)

A little work had been done at that site in the past year but nothing had become of it.IMG_7117-1

Two more were at their nest in Jersey City near the PSE&G Generating Plant. (Right.) 

The final four were near the nest Bloomberg Radio Station Towers in Carlstadt, and once again incredibly territorial — perhaps because we were on foot instead of a pontoon boat.

We kept our distance, but they still flew over us and shouted at us. (Above.)
