Osprey Nest @ 800mm & 1280mm

These images are from a previous trip years ago to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Oceanville Division, in New Jersey. Along the Wildlife Drive there are quite a few Osprey platforms providing good opportunities to photograph Ospreys on nests. Quite often you can also see them with the Osprey nestlings. If you wait long enough you can see them bringing fish to the nests and feeding the chicks.

Osprey Nests on Osprey Platforms

Along the Wildlife Drive are many Osprey Platforms. Most of them have active nests on them. There seems to be more platforms this year than last year. If you are patient you can usually get some interesting images of the birds interacting with the chicks or flight shots as they fly around the nest and eventually fly into the nest.
