Our Osprey and his family seem to be doing very well. Ranger Colleen Sorbera reported on Sunday, May 20th, “I finally saw three Osprey chicks on the South Marsh nest today! They were being fed and everyone looked good.” That is the kind of news I like to hear.
Except for a few flights, our male Osprey seems to be confining his activity to within a one mile radius of his nest. Fishing must be very good in this area. Also, he seems to be catching fish very quickly as he spends a great deal of his time perched near or in the immediate vicinity of his nest. This activity and the three young are all excellent signs of a healthy environment in Jamaica Bay.
