Signs of Hatching

National Park Service Rangers Dave Taft and Colleen Sorbera believe that we may have young in the nest. It will be fun to see how many young hatch and survive from the four eggs.

Our Osprey is beginning to show more signs of moving around Jamaica Bay and beyond. He has extended his flights to about 3.2 miles from his nest to a creek north of Shore Parkway.

Everything seems to be going well.
