I checked again and took photos of this empty tower. No nesting here this year, even though a few sticks remain on the top of the tower where a nesting pair built in 2017. No nesting on the PA equivalent tower either this year. (See nest #7408--Red Cliff Village--this 2017 NJ pair could possibly have moved to the tower across the river in PA in 2019. The pair there had 2 chicks in 2019. I did not watch in 2018).

While checking known nests in this area, I stopped on the PA side and through my scope, looked at the tower on the NJ side. It is still empty; no evidence of nest building even though the pair have also abandoned the nest on the equivalent tower on the PA side.

A path through the woods led directly to the tower on the NJ side of the Delaware River. There was nothing on that tower, not even a stick or two of an old nest. This nest is on the PA side of the river. The tower sits right on the road along side a driveway in a resident's front lawn. Not a NJ nest.
