A typical steamy summer day in NJ. I'm thrilled to say I saw a juvenile fly. Today the two adults were flying overhead, chirping while circling, and the fledgling took flight. Finally I was able to catch a clear photo of the juvenile perched on the tower, and a good shot of him taking off.

This is the first day I saw Lois actually in the nest; I'm assuming it was her. Two ospreys were flying high overhead. She took off, and all disappeared out of my range. I will check on them tomorrow

Today there were 3 osprey circling overhead; one landed on the cell tower while the other two circled each other until one flew away. Then the one on the tower flew off with the other.

When I got to the site this morning, I saw Lois flying overhead. I didn't see Clark until I began taking photos of the nest. He then flew off towards the direction of Lois.

Early morning - Lois was standing on a pole of the cell phone tower holding a fish in her talons, chirping, then jumped onto/into the nest.

At the plaza 8 am, spotted osprey sitting on top of one of the poles. After a few minutes, it flew off. Weather was sunny, a bit cool.

I was standing taking nest photos when I heard chirping. There it was, flying to the nest! I can't see into the nest because it's way up high but I did get some good photos.

On 5/4/2020 I went to visit the newly found nest. I went around to the back of the parking lot to see if I could spot any on the nest but I couldn't. I stayed for a half hour but none flew over.

Before I went to observe the other 2 nests, I had to stop at the shopping plaza. As I went back to my car, I wondered if the nest on top of the cell phone tower was occupied this year (last year no but was the year before). Much to my delight, it was rebuilt. I waited for a bit to see if there was any activity ( I couldn't tell if there was anyone on the nest) and one came flying to the nest! I plan to check on this one first thing in the morning.
