This roosting spot is at the top of a white oak tree overlooking Treasure Lake in the Cliffwood Beach section of Aberdeen, New Jersey. Osprey were often seen in this tree in 2015 but foliage obscured observation from the ground. In the summer of 2016, multiple visual and audible observations confirmed weeks of feeding and defense of the spot but no nesting activity.

The nest is located on the Monmouth County side of Whale Creek, just off Ocean Boulevard and across from the fishermen's parking lot at Cliffwood Beach in Aberdeen Township, New Jersey. Besides going to the shore and parking to go view the nest, there is a viewing stand with a NJ State Park interpretive sign and bench you can sit on along the Kavanaugh Trail in Cheesequake State Park. The wooded trail is accessible from Lakeshore Drive not far from the Aberdeen Twp Maintenance Center on Lenox Road. A wooden archway has the trail name marked at the street edge. The trail is new and can be pretty muddy after a rain, so wear proper foot gear. There is a description of the trail, creek, et al at Aberdeen NJ Life blog.
