Osprey Pestered by Falcon near Kane Natural Area









Sometimes photos are just for information… Took these distant shots near the Bloomberg Radio transmission towers in Carlstadt last Thursday.

An Osprey that recently nested on the towers left with a fish as we pulled into the parking lot there.

Soon after, as it headed toward the Rochard P. Kane Natural Area, it was chased by a falcon — Peregrine or Merlin? — until it left the area.

The following day, American Kestrels were chasing Peregrines by Disposal Road in Lyndhurst. It's an aerial jungle out there.
