    I too am looking forward to seeing your postings from this nest. I would love to see this in person.
  10. Interesting nest. Note the nest is almost void of sticks; very shallow. Our Osprey nests up here are larger and deeper which provides some protection from sleep-walking chicks. Is this "style" of nest common to your area?

    What a great opertunity to be able see the young ones grow. Great shots.
  12. Thanks all! I'll be following this family every other day and I'll post the photos here. I have a big day today, I'll be photographing the banding of juvenile ospreys with the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife at another nest! I'll post them as soon as I get back. The weather is cloudy this morning...hope the sun breaks out soon.

  13. Hi Mr. Ricco, I guess our Jersey ospreys are lazy because all of my nests looks very similar to this, nothing deep like you describe.
