The Carlstadt nest had two young, the kearny nest had three, and the Jersey City nest had three as well.
A slipshod fourth nest was under construction on a telephone pole — not the greatest location — south of the Kearny nest (which is across from Laurel Hill).
The ospreys have made a remarkable comeback in the past five years in the district.
