Ranger Dave Taft checked in on our mystery osprey that has been hanging around the nest platform in Jamaica Bay.
On Friday, March 15th he reports that a large Osprey which seemed like an adult female on a tussock next to the nest. This bird had clear dark back and a streakier breast, while males typically have white breasts. It’s believed this same bird has been spotted at the nest a few times.
It looks like Coley has an eager audience waiting up on his return.
