AUGUST 30, 2015 UPDATE ON THE OSPREY NEST IN THE CROTON PARKING LOT

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON. 

AN UPDATE ON THE OSPREY NEST IN THE CROTON PARKING LOT; CHICKS AND PARENTS NO LONGER AT THE NEST...Your editor and the elves reported that there had been next to no activity at the cell tower nest site for at least three weeks now--although four to five ospreys were often seen in the trees on the Ossining side of the estuary. THE TWO CONFIRMED CHICKS that were in the nest had already gotten quite large back in early July--you can see a photo of both taken by Bonnie Tallutto at the FEED THE BIRDS FB page here http://on.fb.me/1JFhxAX  

This morning, a contractor was there at the top of the cell tower, presumably removing the remains of the empty nest and checking things out--looks like there were three workers up there, 2 in the bucket, one outside. See you next year Ospreys!  Click on the photos below, all rights reserved.
