Just got back today and already the osprey was working on the nest. That's part of the scheme to get the hormones flowing for mating and reproduction of his species.

Looking up the Delaware River from the new Lardner's Point Trail, one can see the group of the Riverton, NJ, range markers across from Pennypack Park. The one behind the green channel marker is where a pair of ospreys usually live; although, the nest has been removed. Never noticed the tower at the far right of the photo before. That one looks like a good spot for ospreys. Will have to check on that later in the season.

Turned my lens to photograph the McFarland, the ship seen in the photo with this osprey heading out of Dodge. When I looked back, here's the BBB female that was in her nest before my turning away, with a nice fish to eat.
