Osprey Chicks Fledge at New Site on Sandy Neck!

Osprey Fledgling 12

The Osprey Pole by the Halfway House research cottage on the Sandy Neck marsh trail has been around for almost 8 years without any nesting success. This year, for the first time, not only did an Osprey pair nest at this site, they also fledged 2 chicks! These birds were observed testing out their newly acquired flight feathers and navigating around the nearby Tree Swallow nesting boxes yesterday afternoon!
